Drawing of Find 2.
In order to explore the extent of the bedrock sheeting it was decided to extend the trench to the north and to the east. Photographs taken of Locus 4 and 5 . The trench now looks like: (drawing). The trench has been extended one meter to the east and one meter to the west, but we will primarily at this time be excavating the first 30cm of each just outside the old trenchÂ’s boundaries. Locus 4 is declared in the north 30cm, and is a deep brown, organic filled humus layer. Locus 5 is declared in the east 30cm and is also the same deep brown, organic filled
