Due to soil still being damp, ground wasn\'t broken until the afternoon.  Opening depths were taken.  See and .

The topography of the trench is very erratic, with as much as a 20 cm change in depth from point 5 to point 4.  Because of this, it was decided to pickaxe two meters at a time and level the floor before moving to the next two meters.  Also, clearing was done in the area south of T26 and east of T27 for possible exploratory trenches.  Also, due to the rain and mud, the points taken Friday were ignored.


Broke ground in meter 51S 160E and extended it to meter 41S 161E.  The average depth of the cut was 5 cm, though ranging considerably due to the erratic topography.  After the cut, the soil was sifted and the two meters began being levelled.

At the close of the day, the two meters weren\'t levelled yet at the target depth of 135 cm.  The bulk terracotta was 1/8 of a cassetta and was composed of several large tile fragments and many small, highly eroded pieces.  The bulk pottery was 1/8 of a latte box and composed of highly worn coarseware, 1 piece of buccher, impasto fragments, and several pieces of bone.  There were two special finds.
