Pick pass done in the southwestern corner in order to bring that area down to the level in the south. Soil sorted and cleaned from the trench, remains consistent with Locus 3 . Terra cotta found during cleaning. Pick axing done over the third meter by four meter strip from the north. Several rocks encountered during the pick pass. Soil sorted and cleaned from the trench, consistent with Locus 3 . Terra cotta found during sorting. Pick pass done in the southern most meter, rocks encountered during picking. Soil sorted and cleaned from the trench, terra cotta and pottery found while cleaning. Soil remains consistent with Locus 3 . Another pick pass done over the area of the southern most meter by four meter strip. Soil sorted and cleaned from the trench, consistent with Locus 3 soil. Terra cotta found mixed in with the rocks. The southwestern corner is still higher than the rest of the southern meter, so more picking done through that area, especially in the root system of
the stump there. Soil sorted and cleaned from the trench, consistent with Locus 3 . Pick axing done in the southeastern corner also to level it. Soil sorted and cleaned from the trench, remaining consistent with Locus 3 . Terra cotta found during cleaning. The small wall between CB 52 and CB 53 taken down to create a level surface between the two trenches. The rest of the trench's baulk walls trimmed. Some pottery and terra cotta found during baulk trim. Half of the stump along the northern baulk wall removed.
Roots in the baulk wall clipped. Began defining the rocks present over the whole trench starting at the northern wall and pulling back towards the south. Terra cotta found during cleaning. The rocks are appearing over the entire area of the northern most meter, but not tightly packed. The rocks are on average 10-15cm in length with some side by side and some with a distance between them of 2-20 cm. In a couple of places there is terra cotta embedded in the trench level alongside rocks, as well as other terra cotta which is coming out during
cleaning. In the western part of the second meter from the north bedrock sheets appearing. In the southern most two meters by four meters of the trench the rocks have dropped to a lower elevation, and there are fewer of them. There are three or four notable larger rocks, 30-50cm in the south two meters. Terra cotta being found in entire area of the trench. Roots clipped over the entire area of the trench.
