Daily Log 27 July 2009


Began work with pick pass through Locus 9, mottled soil. While sorting 3 pieces of bulk bronze and a twisted bronze fibula fragment and bronze tack were recovered from the previously identified (pg 45) carbon and bronze area.

Find #1 Bronze Fibula Fragment

Locus 9


27.14m (absolute elevation)



Find #2 Bronze Tack

Locus 9


27.12m (absolute elevation)



Baulk walling the trench continued across the entire trench. The north end of the trench exposed a slight slope in the yellow soil from T-30A. Work to level and expose yellow soil continued in the north.


Work in Locus 9 continued by trowel. Soil appears slightly more gray (see pg. 63) and not productive. PIck passes across the area of Locus 9 continued to pull up the same mottled soil with some gray galestra-like inclusions, possibly attributed to the proximity of removed stump.

Closing Elevations in Locus 9:

55.90S/175.36E: 26.84m (absolute elevation)

55.85S/176.35E: 26.81m (absolute elevation)

57S/175.33E: 26.85m (absolute elevation)

57S/176.35E: 26.85m (absolute elevation)

Locus 9 soil remained mottled through afternoon. 1 bowl of terracotta and 2 boxes of pottery/bone were recovered from Locus 9. Approximately 20 pieces of terracotta and 3/4 box of pottery/bone from the baulk.
