Work began with a pick pass of the whole trench, beginning in the northern portion of the trench and moving south.  The soil remains predominately gray, flaky, and galestra-like, although there are still some concentrations of reddish-brown, clay-like, mottled soil, with inclusions of terracotta and carbon.  There is also a fairly large quantity of large tile fragments, as well as some pottery and bone.  Soil is sorted in the trench, directly into buckets.

Another pick pass was made, beginning in the north of the trench.  The soil is still mostly gray, flaky, and galestra-like, although there is a significant amount of reddish-brown, mottled soil throughout the trench.  There is still also ancient material scattered throughout this soil, mostly terracotta tiles, with some pottery and bone.  There are also some large chunks of charcoal, within both the galestra-like and mottled soils.  Soil is sorted within the trench, directly into buckets.


Work contined with a third pick pass, beginning in the southern half ot the trench.  The soil remains galestra-like with areas of mottled, claylike soil.  Additionally, there is a large quantity of rocks,tile, and carbon present in this locus, with a small amount of pottery and bone.  Soil continues to be sorted in the trench, directly into buckets.  Once this pick pass was cleaned up and sorted, teh baulk walls were trimmed.  While trimming the baulk walls, a bronze fragment (Find #1) was recovered.
