Excavation began in Locus 8 , digging in the western meter. Once the area was down to a darker clay-like soil, it was decided to dig the rest of the trench to the new soil and prepare the extension for a new locus. Tile and pottery were found and one piece of vitrified terracotta. Charcoal was found in small deposits. Nine pick passes were completed before lunch.


A Pick pass was completed in the northwestern section of the locus. During this pick pass, a tile packing was discovered. Using trowels and handpicks, the tile packing was exposed. The tile packing is situated next to the tile packing in Locus 7 of VT7.
