Work continued trimming back the baulk walls of the trench and defining the rocks in the linear rock feature and beneath the slopes from the eastern baulk wall. Defining the rock feature in the southeast corner revealed a piece of burnt bone.

Special Find #1

Burnt Bone Fragment

Locus 2

39.67 S, 105.54 E

199 cm BD/ 26.93 m AE

Trimming the baulk walls has also turned up a decent amount of tile, pottery, and some bone. Once the baulk trimming was completed, the trench was swept clean of all loose dirt and debris from the past few days. After the trench was swept, it was decided that excavation in locus 2 be halted and the locus was then closed, however the trench will remain open for the time being. Therefore, locus 2 closing elevations

and photographs were taken. Additionally, soil samples were taken to be munselled later in the magazzino. At the end of excavation in locus 2 , the soil was the same medium brown rocky as before, with flaky, lighter, galestra-like soil underneath.
