IV. Daily Log

A.M./P.M.     6 July 2016

Excavation continued in locus 6 .  Two pick-passes were carried out throughout the locus except where there were concentrations of stones.  Selected picking was done around the tree in the southwest corner of the trench.  There are many roots in this locus, but more and more flaky limestone is turning up as excavation proceeds downwards.  Approximately 1 1/2 dozen mostly small well-worn fragments of terracotta were recovered.  Approximately 1/5 latte-box of pottery sherds was found along with one jaw fragment, one tooth, one tooth fragment and seven pieces of bone/antler.  Four special finds were made. End of the day co-ordinate elevations for locus 6 :

NW(80-E/44.7-S): 25.78 m. above absolute elevation (85 cm. below datum point)

NE(84-E/44.7-S): 25.89 m. above absolute elevation (74 cm. below datum point)

SE(84-E/47-S): 25.80 m. above absolute elevation (83 cm. below datum point)

SW(80-E/47-S): 25.76 m. above absolute elevation (87 cm. below datum point)

Some defining of the stones in locus 7 was carried out and balk-wall cleaning was started.  The trench will be extended southwards.  For this purpose the area south of the trench was cleared of brush, trees, other organics and loose stones.  The area was then staked out.

Special Finds:

#1. Locus 6 81.4-E/46.3-S 25.79 m. above absolute elevation (84 cm. below datum point) Bucchero sherd with stamped impression
