Daily Log

July 5, 2004


We began the morning with one pick-pass around the rock patch in the extension area.  We prepared the area for pictures by levelling the trench, definining the rocks, sweeping the rock patch, and trimming roots and baulk walls.

We then made a pick-pass through half the trench moving from east to west.  This pick-pass, although the soil was the same as Locus 4, had large quantities of carbon, and also different-colored plaster.  Bronze was also present in the trench.  We designated it as Locus 5 because it was mottled with carbon, multi-colored plaster, and bronze.  The closing elevations for Locus 4 on Friday are the opening elevations for Locus 5.


We took photos of the rock patch in the extension area.

One pick-pass of the western side of the trench was made.  We left Locus 4 open in the following coordinates: 145.32 E / 58 S, 146.00 E / 58 S

145.32 E / 60 S, 146.00 E / 60 S, because the same amount of carbon, multi-colored plaster, and bronze was not present in this area as in the rest of the trench.

We levelled the trench in order to take pictures tomorrow (Tuesday) for Locus 5.
