After removing the tarp, the soil was dry enough to begin sweeping again. Sweeping continued in order to continue revealing the rock layer. The road surface was reached throughoutand the trench was closed with elevations of:
244.9E/ 29.1S 43 cm BD 26.57m ae
245.9E/ 29.2S 50cm BD 26.5m ae
246.85E/ 30.4S 78cm BD 26.22m ae
248.7E/ 31.4S 128cm BD 25.72m ae
248.6E/ 33.4S 130cm BD 25.7m ae
244.6E/ 33.1S 77cm BD 26.63m ae
Photographs were taken and CD 12 was closed; today it yielded 6 pieces of terra cotta and 3 pieces of pottery. Based on the continuation of the pathlike feature visible on the surface and confirmed by Locus 3 of CD 12, a series of extension trenches will be dropped along its projected path. The first, designated CD 12-A was laid out and opened. Photographs were taken and opening elevations were:
SW 243.2E/ 26.4S 98.5 cm BD 26.415m ae
NW 243.5E/ 23.4S 100.7 cm BD 26.393m ae
NE 240.6E/ 23.6S 120 cm BD 26.2m ae
SE 240.3E/ 26.6 S 126 cm BD 26.14m ae
Center 109.4 cm BD 26.306m ae
The trench is 2 by 2 meters with a datum in a tree to the south, with an absolute elevation of 27.4 m.
A pick pass was begun and turned up small rocks almost immediately. The topsoil was too tough to trowel so a shallow pass was executed throughout the rest of the trench. An iron nail was discovered ().
The pick pass was cleared up and work finished for the day.in CD 12 A yielded 1/2 bowl of terracotta today and 22 pieces of pottery -- including 1 base and 1 rim.
