Made a shallow pick-pass in the extension.  We trimmed baulk walls in the original trench and cleared soil around the tree stump and larger rocks.  Made a second pick-oass in the extension.  We declared Locus 3 here due to thinner, light brown soil.  We took elevations for the new locus, which are also closing elevations for the extension today.

Closing elevations / Opening elevations- Locus 3 (extension):

  • NW corner: 117.5 cm b.d.
  • SW corner: 112.0 cm b.d.
