We began the day by baulk hammering the Eastern half of the trench to loosen small rocks and soil while keeping the large rocks in place.  We continued the process of baulk hammerin and clearing for about two hours until 9:00 AM.  We then began more concentrated excavating in the Northeast part of the trench.  In a curious U-shaped rock fall in the Northeast corner of the trench we found 15 cm of spongey topsoil with little material yield.


We spent the entire afternoon defining the large rocks in Western half of the trench with trowels.  We put the loose dirt into buckets and dumped the South of CD-13.  By the end of the day we could see pretty clearly what looked like deliberate stacking of rocks.
