Daily Log 16/7/15



Completed around 20 pick passes in Locus 6 without any materials surfacing. The soil is yellow and granular, mottled with white, and consists of what appears to be decomposing limestone.


The afternoon began with pick passes in Locus 3 to verify the sterility of the soil. The soil appears bright white and chalky, particularly in the northwestern end of the Locus. There appears to be a darker soil that is in the south of the locus, in which a fragment of pottery was found. Also, flecks of charcoal were noticed in this soil.
