Find # 1

Worked Chert

Locus 5

26.94m A.E.


As work continues the soil becomes visibly lighter in colour as well as softer. The density of stones and roots has diminished. Baulk walls have been refined and the pillar of soil in the North East corner has been removed.

Due to the change in soil colour and texture a new locus was declared. The methodology will remain the same until any sort of stone feature is discovered. Every third bucked of loose soil will now be sifted through the sieve.
