Did 5 cm cut across locus18. Observed a soil change in texture and some in color so closed locus 18 and opened locus 19. The soil in locus 19 is characterised by a yellow olive color with occassional patches of yellowish gray clay - particularly around roots and rocks. The texture is extremely crumbly and comes apart in tiny crumbs and rock shaped flakes. The soil is characteristic of pre-galestra soil. The following coordinates were taken for locus 19:

coordinates (m)                 depth (cm)

1) S51.76 E160.66                203

2) S51.88 E161.37                207

3) S 53.33 E160.65               205.5

4) S53.38 E 161.17               209

5) S52.53 E 160.95               198

A cut was then made across locus 19. Extremely little pottery was recovered and the soil became very difficult to pick through. Instead of continuing through, it was decided to halt there and devote much neede attention to the baulk walls. The plan then is to

trim the baulk walls until plumb and then level the floor along the contours of the actual galestra.


Trimmed baulk walls.

Locus 18 produced 1/16 cassetta of terracotta and less than 1 latte of ceramics and bone. Locus 19 produced a handful of terracotta frags and app 1 latte box of ceramics and bone as well as two large frags of impasto. The baulkwall trim yielded app 1 latte of ceramics and bone, 1/4 cassetta of terracotta and 2 bronze frags. There were 10 special finds.
