X3 was levelled with the pick to just above the rock surface. It was then swept to this level. All three extensions appear to contain the same stonepaved surface, without revealing an edge  perhaps revealing a large, paved area, rather than just a road. AFter sweeping, all three extensions were photographed and closed. Closing elevations were:

CD 12 will now continue with three extension trenches to the west, towards the east wall of the archaic building. Using the correct master grid points shot by Ryan Hughes yesterday, the next trench  CD 12 C  was triangulated. It is a one by two meter trench bounded by grid points 213214 E, 13.515.5 S. It should be noted that these points (for CD 12 C, CD 12 D, and CD 12 E) are correct and unrelated to the faulty points used previously. The area was raked, strung, and photographed. Opening elevations were taken from a datum in a tree to the southwest (to be used for all
three new trenches. Those elevations were:
NE 214 E/ 13.5 S 121 cm BD 27.99, ae
NW 213 E/ 13.5 S 117 cm BD 28.03m ae
SW 213 E/ 15.5 S 123 cm BD 27.97m ae
SE 214 E/ 15.5 S 125 cm BD 27.95m ae
Center 213.5 E/ 14.5 S 123 cm BD 27.97m ae
The absolute elevation of the datum is 29.20 m.
The trench was picked and sorted. The hard packed rock surface was encountered right away.
P.M.
The trench was then swept down to this level, roots were cut, and photos taken. CD 12 C was closed.
yielded 5 sherds of pottery and a handful of terra cotta. Closing elevations were:NE 214 E/ 13.5 S 125 cm BD 27.95m ae
NW 213 E/ 13.5 S 123 cm BD27.97m ae
SW 213 E/ 15.5 S 127 cm BD 27.93m ae
SE 214 E/ 15.5 S 129 cm BD 27.91m ae
Center 213.5 E/ 14.5 S 128.5 cm BD 27.915m ae
Another trench, a two by one meter cut to be called CD 12 D, was triangulated, raked, and strung. It is bounded by the grid points 210211 E, 13.515.5 S. Photos were taken. Opening elevations were:
NE 211 E/ 13.5 S 113.5 cm BD 28.065m ae
NW 210 E/ 13.5 S 111 cm BD 28.09m ae
SW 210 E/ 15.5 S 112 cm BD 28.08m ae
SE 211 E/ 15.5 S 115 cm BD 28.05m ae
Center 210.5 E/ 14.5 S 120.5 cm BD 27.995m ae
A pick pass was completed and sorted. Another was executed to level out missed spots. The trench was then swept to the rock pack layer and closed. Photos were taken.
Elevations were:
NE 211 E/ 13.5 S 118 cm BD 28.02m ae
NW 210 E/ 13.5 S 117.5 cm BD 28.025m ae
SW 210 E/ 15.5 S 122 cm BD 27.98m ae
SE 211 E/ 15.5 S 121 cm BD 27.99m ae
Center 210.5 E/ 14.5 S 122 cm BD 27.98m ae
of CD 12 D yielded 5 pieces of terra cotta and 2 pieces of pottery.
The third trench was cleared, triangulated, and strung. It is called CD 12 E and is three by one meters. The decision was made to lengthen it by one meter to the south in order to try again to find an edge to the apparent road surface. A small ditch there appears promising. It is bounded by master grid points 207208 E, 13.516.5 S. Opening elevations were:
NE 207 E/ 13.5 S 105.5 cm BD 28.145m ae
NW 208 E/ 13.5 S 100 cm BD 28.2m ae
SW 208 E/ 16.5 S 111 cm BD 28.09m ae
SE 207 E/ 16.5 S 109 cm BD 28.11m ae
Center 207.5 E/ 15 S 105 cm BD 28.15m ae
Photos were taken and work ended for the weekend. As CD 12 E was not yet excavated, it has no material yield.
