A.M.

This morning excavation began in Locus 7 and Locus 5 . In Locus 7 the tile and ceramic packing was further exposed in the west of the locus. In Locus 5 we began by removing soil in the east butting the linear stone feature to potentially unveil and find an associated floor surface. As yesterday, a large quantity of tile and ceramic is being recovered, along with bone. In both sections we are excavating using minipicks and trowels.
