Work began with picking in Locus 3. While sorting, a piece of bronze was found.
Special Find #16: bronze
It was decided to see if the rock feature in Locus 4 continued elsewhere. Locus 3 is being cleaned up and then a 2x2 extension will be drawn off of the northern wall. Once the trench was cleaned and roots were clipped, an area was cleared north of the trench for extension. The coordinates for the extension are as follows: 28E/25S, 30E/25S, 30E/27S, and 28E/27S. It abuts CA89 on the trench’s eastern wall. The points and extension were drawn off of the northern baulk of CA87 and eastern wall of CA89. Opening photos for Locus 5 were taken and the locus was drawn.
Locus 5 Drawing
Locus 5 consists of a dark brown topsoil extending across the full 2x2 extension. There are some stumps and many roots in the soil. The locus is equivalent to Locus 1. Opening elevations for Locus 5 were taken and Locus 5 was declared.
Locus 5 Opening Elevations:
28E/25S: 27.13 mAE
30E/25S: 27.16 mAE
30E/27S: 27.04 mAE
28E/27S: 27.13 mAE
Soil from this morning’s pass was cleaned up. Another pass was thrown across the locus. The baulk wall separating the CA87 extension and CA89 was removed, as the trenches are at approximately the same level. A lighter soil is being revealed, corresponding to Locus 2 soil. Once this is revealed across the extension, it will be declared Locus 6. Closing elevations were taken.
