locus 2

the northern meter has begun to generate a number of special finds. While the pieces might not be particularly well preserved they are varied and fit the assemblage found in the other CA trenches: slag, bronze, and bone. Vitrified terracotta and bone are now being sorted into latte boxes, instead of counting them as special finds, because we are uncovering so many samples. The soil remains clay-ish although the number of rocks has decreased.
