Work began with an attempt to measure the west baulk of the trench correctly. By measuring off the plan, we decided that we should measure in 16.6m from the large stone on the inside corner of the building at the SW corner (the stone now has a painted mark on it).

We had trouble with this measurement. Most of the problems arose from being unable to find certain stones clearly drawn on the plan. After clearing off the moss ane weeds from parts of the wall we were able to find a few of the stones on the plan and to check to make sure that the distance between these stones (in reality) corresponed to the plan.

Most frustrating was the absence of a stone which measures approx. 40x40 cm on the plan. This stone

should have been right where we wanted to make our measurements. It is no longer there.

In the end we still used 16.6m from the datum stone in the SW corner of the Upper Building as our benchmark. When we took our measurements from it we found we neee to extend our trench 1.43m to the west. This distance, plus the visable erosion on the east baulk of T-25 4-E/13-19 should account for the difference between and make up the two baulk walls last Friday.

We began picking and shovelling topsoil again once we remeasured the trench. This recovered very little.

No finds.
