The workday commenced in Locus 5 using hand picks and trowels to carefully lower the level of the trench. The soil remains yellowish-brown and clay-like, with a few small roots scattered throughout the locus due to the large stump in the northeast corner and the datum tree located in the southwest corner. Once the soil was broken up it was hand sorted into buckets.
During clearing a potentially diagnostic body shard was recovered.

Small concentrations of terra cotta, pottery, and bone have been recovered from the locus with most of the material coming from the western half of the locus, which is most likely due to the presence of the datum tree and several other roots in the area.
