We designated the soil level below June 17's elevation measurements as Locus 2.  The closing elevations from June 17 are therefore the opening elevations of this new locus.  The soil is a lighter grey color and consists of finer particles.  We are completely through the humus and yellow/grey clay levels.  We performed a pick-pass from east to west, sifted, and levelled the trench.  We completed a second pick-pass and began a third, both from east to west.


We completed the third pick-pass and spent the afternoon trimming baulk walls and levelling the floor.  We further exposed a large rock near the 145 E / 60 S point; we do not know its full size so we cannot predict if it will be removed.  The tree will be removed tomorrow.  We had one cassetta of bulk terracotta and 15 pieces of pottery today.

Closing elevations:

  • NE corner: 96.2 cm b.d.
  • SE corner: 105.0 cm b.d.
  • SW corner: 106.0 cm b.d.
  • NW corner: 101.0 cm b.d.

  • Center 108.4 cm b.d.

The corner elevations have been skewed by the location of the stumps in the SW and NE corners and the presence of the temporary wall along the east side.  Therefore, at this time the center and NW measurements are the most accurate elevations levels.

We had no finds today.

Editorial Note

Open Context editors work with data contributors to annotate datasets to shared vocabularies, ontologies, and other standards using 'Linked Open Data' (LOD) methods.

The annotations presented above approximate some of the meaning in this contributed data record to concepts defined in shared standards. These annotations are provided to help make datasets easier to understand and use with other datasets.
