Pickpassed through the top meters of the trench. Soil remains Locus 2, dominated by rocks and terracotta. Cindy has come to the top of a new locus in the NE corner of her trench - similar to the soil which may be appearing in the south of my trench (see CBO I p  ). Very northern corner of the trench had a piece of very burned material. Two unusual pieces of terracotta were found (in different locations in the trench) and appear to be terracotta wasters (Find 1 and Find 2). A differnt soil appears to be in the south of the trench but it is hard to tell due to the sun. Continued to level the south of the trench in an attempt to expose the soil to see if there is in fact a soil change. Due to the sun we decided to wait untill tomorrow to continue pickaxing and instead work on baulkwalls during the afternoon.


Trimmed baulk walls, some very burned materials were found. Took closing elevations.
