Work this morning focused on the western two meters of the trench. We are still in Locus 1. Some pottery and two bowls of tile have been recovered.
Some yellow hard packed soil emerged below the topsoil fill. We are exposing that through the area.
Materially, Locus 1 still has a composition of modern and ancient finds. Tile is heavily worn and pitted. Ceramics are modern, medieval, and ancient.
Now that we have exposed the yellow in the western two meters of the trench we will now declare this a new locus of its own and section through it. The yellow soil will be called Locus 2.
