Excavation continued this morning in Locus 1 of VT11, again in the eastern most 1.5m of the trench. Again a mix of modern and ancient materials are present in low quantities in the fill. Excavation was carried out using a pick axe and shovel to remove soil from the trench. 10 pick-passes were completed.


Further pick-passes have brought us to what appears to be a new soil type beneath the \x91blue/brown' clay of the construction fill. It is a lighter brown and there is a greater concentration of materials here. Consequently it was decided to remove the rest of the

Locus 1 construction fill in the remaining western 3.5m of the trench to reveal this new stratum and others that may be present. The same pick axe and removing soil with shovels approach will be employed. In total another 10 pick-passes were completed as we moved west.
