Work began with a pick pass of the entire trench.  Soil is primarily gray, flaky, and galestra-like, although there are patches of reddish-brown, mottled soil that contains inclusions of terracotta and carbon.  Soil was sorted in the trench, directly into buckets.

A second pick pass was made, beginning in the northern half of the trench and moving south.  The soil remains gray, flaky, and galestra-like, although there are still patches of reddish-brown, mottled soil, especially in the northwest corner of the trench.  Soil contines to be sorted directly into buckets, in the trench.  During this pick pass, a lateral sima fragment (Find #1) was recovered.

A third pick pass was made, again starting in the northern half of the trench.  The soil remains gray, flaky, and galestra-like with patches of reddish-brown, claylike, mottled soil.  Additionally, there seems to be many rocks and tile, especially in the eastern portion of the trench.  Especially in the northwest corner, there is a fair amount of mottled, claylike soil.  Soil is sorted in the trench, direcly into buckets.

Work began with a pick pass, starting in the northern portion of the trench.  While the soil remains predomintately gray, flaky, and galestra-like, there seems to be an increasing amount of brown, claylike, mottled soil. as well as an increasing amount of tiles and ceramcis.  Soil continues to be sorted directly into buckets, while in the trench.  During this pick pass, a bronze flake (Find #3) was recovered.

Once this pick pass was completed, a shallow pick pass was done on the high points of the trench in an attempt to level the floor.  Soil was sorted directly into buckets.  There are still patches of mottled soil, although overall the soil is galestra-like.
