Work began clearing and laying out a 2x3 meter extension directly to the east of the 2012 Ca 73 2x3 meter trench. The surface of the trench contains two significant stumps and a large rock that appears to be resting on the surface. In the northern and southeastern corners there appears to be portions of eposed bedrock. The soil is a dark brown humus rich in organics. This includes leaves, grass, and roots. Opening photos and elevations were taken.

Opening Elevations:

66E, 34 S- 27.42 AE

69E, 34S- 27.45 AE

69E, 36S- 27.42 AE

66E, 36S- 27.17 AE

The large loose rock in the center of the trench was found to be resting on the surface and was removied from the trench. A pick pass was done of the eastern meter of the trench. Many rocks (small, 4-6 cm in length) were uncovered. The soil is densely packed with roots and other organizas such as leaves and small sticks. Terracotta was immediately uncovered in the northeast corner. Sma;; fragments of pottery and one fragment of bone was discovered in the southern meter. The large rock in the southeast appears to extend fartherinto the center of the trench. A second paick pass was doen in the same eastern meter Small amounts of terracotta and pottery continue to be found.


No afternoon excavation due to rain.
