Excavation continued in locus 9 . A pick-pass was carried out throughout the entire locus. Then a pick-pass was carried out throughout the southern half of the locus. Some stones larger than fist-size are appearing in the southern central area of the locus. The soil is also becoming lighter in color and denser in consistency. The locus was closed. Approximately 1/2 bowl of terracotta fragments was recovered. Approximately 1/4 latte-box of pottery sherds was found. Two special finds were made.
#1. Locus 9 81.1-E/48.4-S 25.67 m. above absolute elevation (96 cm. below datum point) Fossilized shell
#2. Locus 9 81.6-E/48.0-S 25.73 m. above absolute elevation (90 cm. below datum point) Bronze nail
Closing co-ordinate elevations for locus 9 :
NW(80-E/47-S): 25.73 m. above absolute elevation (90 cm. below datum point)
NE(84-E/47-S): 25.81 m. above absolute elevation (82 cm. below datum point)
SE(84-E/49-S): 25.62 m. above absolute elevation (101 cm. below datum point)
SW(80-E/49-S): 25.65 m. above absolute elevation (98 cm. below datum point)
Locus 10 is characterized by a lighter
olive-brown color of soil than locus 9. It is also more dense and clay-like than the previous locus. A diagram was drawn of the larger stones, but the center of the locus and heading north is covered by fist-size and smaller stones. Some roots were cut, but actual excavation was put off until tomorrow.
