A pick pass was started in the southern half of Locus 8. The soil in the northern half is a very flakey soil. We will work to expose the extent of the soil in the south. While cleaning the soil a tooth was recovered (SF #1). The baulk walls were trimmed in locus 8 . Another pick pass was done in the southern half of the trench. Locus 11 was picked and the soil was sorted. While cleaning the soil here a small tooth (SF #2) and a front incisor were found (SF #3). The rocks in locus 9 were further defined and are now clear enough to be drawn.
