Pickaxed and troweled to the level of the while soil across the trench. Elevations taken for Locus 4.

Opening Elevations for Locus 4

NW 21.72m  NE 21.595m  SW 21.63m  SE 21.55m

Pickaxed through Locus 4, sifted into the wheelbarrow die to the infrequency of any finds in teh area. On one of the pickpasses a large stone was dislodged and under it was a darker soil, reminicent of Locus 2, including a few pieces of pottery ans well as flecks of carbon and ceramic.

The darker soil/ pocket of Locus 2 under the rock ended and thus it is probable that it was deposited when the rock eroded down the hill. Trowled/pickaxed to bedrock across the trench and then trimmed the baulk walls. Closing elevations taken for the trench.
