Geophysical Survey: July 4-8, 2004

The Slovenian team of the University of Ljubljana, directed by Branco Music and assisted by Barbara Horn and Igor Medaric, has already covered 2.4 hectares to the north of the Hellenstic/late Roman city walls, where a storage facility (?) was identified on either side of the colonnaded street to the south of the Lower Agora and in the Potters' Quarter east of the theater (see Geophysical Survey, June 27-July 1). The two first areas, representing nearly half of the surveyed surface, were studied with two different types of magnetometers. In the central part of the lower city several streets (either perpendicular or parallel to the main street) were identified, as well as rows of shops and structures that do not respect completely the otherwise rigid orthogonal plan. Because the results were spectacular, especially in the Potters' Quarter, I selected them as find of the week. The whole area is an immense industrial zone full of kilns and possibly also furnaces.
