Excavation of locus 6 continued.  It was

lowered approximately 60 cm.  There was not a

significant change in soil composition, which is like

that of locus 5.  The soil becomes a lighter color

near the bottom above what appears to be bedrock.

Approximately 2 bowls of terracotta fragments were

recovered.  Approximately 2 latte boxes of pottery

sherds were found.  Approximately 1/5 latte box of

bone fragments were found.  Six pieces of bronze were

made bulk finds.  Bedrock appears to be becoming

exposed.  There are good size terracotta fragments in

the bottom of the locus.  Nine special finds were

made.  The soil of locus 6 is especially compacted.

1.  Locus 6 45.0-E/53.9-5 24.84 m. above absolute elevation Bronze flake
