Saturday, July 3, 1926 (continued)

(1) G 7000 X (continued)
No. 626: Pottery bowl, red brown war, wet smoothed, R.W.
[ILLUSTRATION] D 36.9 cm, H ca 15 cm
Inside, a mass of potsherds, wood, clumps of gray dust, plaster, etc. The position of mass has shifted by tilting of bowl.
In the original position 626 was covered by 625 and the pottery in 626 must have been there when the bowls were set in place. After the bowls sunk down and tilted into present position much of the wood and plaster etc, appears to have slipped in between 625 and 626 from above.
