11 July 2014

The morning work was delayed dueto rain. Work was suspended until 9 in order to allow some of the soil to dry.It was decided to declare a second locus in the northern square meter (1 meterx 1.29 m). The soil is a light brown yellow color and has very littlecompaction. It appears that half a meter to the north of T-67 was a dirt dumpused in previous excavations of the Piano del Tesoro, and the soil in Locus 2 may be erosion from this dirt dump which was later covered by topsoil. Baulkwalls were established and the trench was prepared for photos, which were thentaken. Because the stratigraphy in Locus 2 is probably later than that in Locus1 , it was decided to work within Locus 2 . A pickpass of Locus 2 was completedmoving north to south.

Locus 2 Opening Elevations:

\xb7 NW- 29.48 m.A.E.

\xb7 NE-28.42 m.A.E.

\xb7 SE- 29.39 m.A.E.

\xb7 SW- 28.35 m.A.E.

In the first pickpass within Locus 2 a diagnostic bone (Special Find #1) was found close to the southernextent of Locus 2 .

Some pottery and a fair amount ofterracotta continues to be found with a small amount of bone. Work continues in Locus 2 . It appears that Locus 2 is dirt which has eroded down from a dirt dumpand is therefore earlier than Locus 1 . Another pickpass was done within Locus 2 in order to remove dirt associated with the dirt dump. Two diagnostic bones(Special Find #7, Special Find #8) were found.

Another pickpass was completedwithin Locus 2 revealing that the soil is beginning to become darker and moreclaylike with a much greater compactness. Terracotta continues to be found witha small amount of pottery. A large piece o unusual terracotta has beenreveraled within the northern baulk wall. Associated fragments with modrn breakedges were recovered (Special Find #10).
