Work began with pick pass of the entire trench. Soil is medium brown in color and relatively loose in texture, but contains many scattered rocks of different sizes and tree roots. Soil was shoveled into buckets and sorted over the wheelbarrow. High quantities of tile and relatively large quantities of pottery and bone were found.

A second pick pass was made of the trench, beginning in the northern meters of the trench. Soil continues to be medium dark brown in color and loose in texture, with many roots and rocks of various sizes; we are still excavating an old dirt dump. Soil continued to be shoveled into buckets and was sorted over the wheelbarrow. High quantities of tile, pottery, and bone were recovered. After the soil from this second pick pass was cleaned up and sorted, we excavated along the trench walls, to better define the borders.


Work picked up with another pick pass of the entire trench, working from north to south. Soil continues to be medium brown and loose, with patches of different color soil and charcoal, which is typical of a dirt dump. There are also many medium-sized rocks and tree roots. Soil is shoveled into buckets and sorted over the wheelbarrow. High quantities of tile, pottery, and bone as found. Closing elevations for the day were taken.
