Excavations began using hand picks, hand axes and trowels to define and lower locus 17 . The soil of locus 17 is moist, clumping soil with several large roots stretching throughout the locus. There have been few pieces of tile, pottery, or bone of any kind. Several large stones are packed together in the locus, seemingly continuing from the west. Due to the size of the roots in the trench, we will be leaving them as removing them may destroy the rock packing underneath. All soil atop the stones having been removed, we have decided to close the locus.

Closing Elevations locus 17

1) 27.16 mAE

2) 27.20 mAE

3) 27.25 mAE

4) 27.25 mAE

5) 27.12 mAE

Trowels and hand picks were then used to define the linear rock packing in locus 18 . Loose soil was brushed away to further expose

the rocks. Very little tile or pottery was found.
