Continued to work on bringing the surface down through Locus 3 across the trench. The soil continues to be a yellow - white chalky soil with no inclusions save roots and rocks. It was decided that the area in which we were focusing excavation should be extended to the north. Depths taken for the openin of locus 4. Rock packing was drawn by one of the illustartors.
