Work began late due to overnight/morning rain.  Lecture given by  Ryan Hughes in the Magazino.  Work began at 9:45.  The soil in the trench was still very damp due to forest cover and humidity.  Avery small area was picked very shallowly along the east baulk to determine if picking was safe throughout the trench.  THe worry was that the wet clumps of topsoil would disturb and pull up the rocks from the apparent road surface.  The rocks were damaged, so picking and sorting continued.  A peculiar piece of terra cotta was found ( Find # 1 ).


Picking and sorting continued, turning up unusual terra cotta, perhaps an

architectural connection or joint ( Find # 2 ).

More picking turned up a piece of ceramic that appears worked ( Find # 3 ).

Picking brought the entire trench down to a level just above the stones.  Roots were clipped and sweeping began.  Sweeping uncovered a piece of iron ( Find # 4 ).

Sweeping also uncovered a piece of burned wood ( Find # 5 ).

Sweeping began to reveal what appears to be the road surface.  It has presented itself best in the center of the trench and at the east and west baulks.  Seeping will continue Thursday.

Locus 1 yielded 1/2 bowl of terra cotta and 18 sherds of pottery today -- including 1 base and 4 rims.
