AM

A pick pass was done in the southern half of locus 4 . Not many rocks were found with the pick. A few pieces of tile were recovered. The soil was sorted into buckets and dumped into wheelbarrows. Another pick pass was done in the souther part of locus 4 . Soil was sorted into buckets. Small worn bits of terracotta were recovered. A piece of medieval handle was unearthed (S.F. #1).

Special Find #1

Medieval Handle

Locus 4

52.43E, 52.66S

25.42 mAE

A third pick pass was done in the southern part of the trench. The soil was sorted and dumped. The ridge between CB 54 and 57 and CB 54 and 53 were removed. Two small stumps on the western baulk were defined and removed. The border between locus 3 and 4 was defined. The trench was swept and the rocks were cleaned. The roots along the western baulk were defined and removed. A piece of medieval tile was recovered (S.F. #2).

Special Find #2

Medieval Tile

Locus 4

51.83E, 51.8S

25.67 mAE

After cleaning the trench it was noticed that rocks of locus 3 extend north and east. They extend ~20 cm north of the original boundary and to the boundary between CB 53 and 54 and ~80 cm south of the 49S line. The rocks will be excavated as a part of locus 3 and the closing coordinates will reflect this change. The layer of rocks in locus 3 were defined and removed, the large rock in the southwest was removed.

PM

The rocks continued to be defined through locus 3 . Pieces of worn tile has been found. A piece of medieval tile was found, but is being counted in the tile bowl. The rocks are becoming smaller and less compacted. It appears that the rock packing has been removed from the trench, and now the trench appears to have a uniform soul through out. The trench was swept and scraped for closing/ opening photos. Locus 3 and 4 were closed and locus 5 open over the whole trench. Elevations and photos were taken. The closing coordinated are different from the opening ones for loci 3 and 4 . Locus 5 is a similar soil to loci 2, 3, and 4 but lacks the same rocking packing as 2 & 3.

Locus 5 is across the entire trench. It is a yellow-brown soil with some small rocks scattered through the trench in no concentration. The last small stump was chopped out of the trench with an ax. The northern baulk wall was trimmed.
