Daily Log - 6 Jul 09

AM- Still clearing Locus 2. In Section A we have come down on a white/gray layer that appears to be the archaic surface; some terracotta, but little or no pottery.  This white layer extends into Section B but becomes harder to find, most likely because of the roote systems present.  In Section C, some white/gray patches are visible but difficult to discern. This white/gray

is most likely the Archaic surface layer that sat atop the Archaic fill. This thing layer will be declared locus 3.  The elevations at the end of Locus 2:

1- 27.54; 2- 27.50; 3- 27.46;4- 27.49; 5- 27.51; 6- 27.61;

7- 27.44;8- 27.47; 9- 27.49; 10- 27.52; 11- 27.55; 12- 27.50
