The soil in this locus is a dense clay with inclusions of small stones, carbon, and a white crumbly material. Large amounts of pottery (mainly impasto, but also coarseware and fine impasto) and tile have been

recovered along with a very small amount of bone.


No excavation was done in the trench as we were assisting in the excavation of locus 10 in VT-13 which abuts and is equivalent to VT-14's locus 4 .
