Work began iwth a pick pass in Locus 3 in the eastern metre. Terracotta was found. Another pick pass was done in Locus 2 (to the east of Stump F) and Locus 3 (to the west of Stump F) and material collected separately. Both loci remain consistent in soil colour. Another pick pass was done in the NE and SE corner metres as these areas were unevenly high. In the NE area, a piece of bronze (Special Find No.1) was found.

After this pass was collected, baulk walling began on the eastern and southern baulk walls. While the last of the pick pass was collected, a statue fragment (Special Find No. 2) was found in the south-east Locus 2 area.
