Work continued defining the tiles in Locus 2 and levelling the trench from high points made through picking. Soil is particularly dense, save for occasional patches of a lighter brown soil.

As we approach the removal of the tiles, we are calling them and the soil around them Locus 4 . This Locus has the same coordinates as Locus 2 . The soil is similar too, a dark brown and densely packed soil.
