Date Opened: 11 July 2017

 

Date Closed: 14 July 2017

 

Munsell: 7.5 YR 6/2: Pinkish Grey

 

Description: The soil in Locus 2 is a light grey in comparison to the previous locus. It is filled with a dry soil that is loose. This locus contains little organic material (roots). Locus 2 appears to be consisting of a large quantity of stones, 5 cm or smaller. It was in Locus 2 that a continuation of bedrock that encompassed the trench was discovered. 6 pieces of pottery and 67 pieces of terracotta was discovered in Locus 2. Special finds were a bronze disc that was later interpreted to be a Medieval coin, probably from Perugia and a Medieval pottery fragment.
