Excavation was suspended for themorning due to wet soil from rain. The morning was spent debackfilling the areaof T-45 and T-46. Erosion from T-67 which was built up ontop of the backfill ofT-45 and T-46 was removed and sorted through. T-45 was also bailed out of waterin order to create a safer work area.


The mud and water which remainedagainst the two exposed sides of T-67 were removed. From the sorted erosionsoil 1 bowl of tile and pottery and one bone were found. Locus 1 was picked inorder to uncover the extent of the possible tile fall which has been exposed in Locus 2 . In the picjpass two diagnostic bones (Special Find #1 and Special Find#2).
