Continued trimming the baulk alls that were started the previous afternoon.  We used baulk hammers and trowels.  We then finished the pick pass that had been started on the previous afternoon.  Also cleaned out the stumps for removal later in the day.

After lunch we will level the trench floor to prepare to open Locus 2 .  There has been a change in the soil from dark brown and loose to light brownish-gray and clumpy.  We are also doing this to prepare for photos in the A.M.


Levelled the floor of the trench using the pickaxe and baulk hammers.  Then the baulks were trimmed in order to reveal the soil change in the trench using trowels and baulk hammers.  Removed both stumps from the trench with the pickaxe.  Swept down the trench floor in preparation for photos in the A.M.

The goals for tomorrow are to take the photo and then begin taking the trench floor down through Locus 2 .
