Daily Log 8/7/14
The floor of the trench is too wet to excavate due to overnight rains. We started to trim the southern baulk wall and define the roots and rocks there. Due to the lack of material being found and the high number of rocks present in locus 3 we spent the morning defining the rocks there while we waited for
to dry out enough to excavate.
Special Find #1
Sheep Tibia Bone
Locus 2 (Sieve Find)
94-94.5 E, 33-33.5 S
While completing a pick pass in the eastern meter of locus 2 , a shotgun shell was recovered under a root near the southern eastern corner. It appears that the shell was kicked in from the edge of the trench since the shell was fairly clean, we will continue to excavate locus 2 in the previous described manner picking and sorting by hand with every 4 th bucket being sieved. A pocket of light grey soil appeared in the north-east corner of locus 2. Another pocket of light grey soil was found in the middle of the trench towards the north (north-west corner of locus 2 ). While sorting through locus 2 , rocks were being defined and the surface was being leveled in the eastern part of locus 3. The western half meter was picked with hand picks due to the amount of rocks.
