Daily Log 7/7/15
Excavation began this morning concentrating in the west end of the trench. As we picked to the west the soil became lighter and coarser in texture. It is a yellowish-brown. Some tile and pottery was recovered - all ancient materials.
As we have now found new soils in the trench, we are preparing the trench to declare new loci. The trench is being baulk walled and cleaned in preparation for this.
This afternoon we cleared and cleaned for the declaration of two new loci. The walls
were trimmed and the trench was scraped.
Locus 2 is a brown soil, clay-like, but more granular than Locus 1 . It is situated from the eastern wall of the trench to circa 1-1.5 m from the western wall. Some tile and stones are visible on its surface.
