Daily Log 29/7/10


Began the morning by trimming the southern and part of western and northern baulk walls. A pick pass was done in the northwestern corner of the trench to lower that area north of the rock feature which was not excavated yesterday. The stump roots in this area are hindering picking. Tile pottery and bone was found. Dirt was sorted into buckets and dumped. Another pick pass was done. More tile and pottery was uncovered and several large rocks were hit during the pick pass. The extent of this rock is unknown but it is already 30 cm x 30 cm. More roots were exposed and removed. A piece of terracotta shaped like a brick was recovered (S.F. #1). 2 pieces of slag were found and bulk slag was started.
