CA 65 is a 3 x 4 trench. The corners were layed out using triangulation. Grass and other organic material was cleared for opening photographs. Locus 1 was declared across the whole trench. Elevations for locus 1 were taken, and a sketch was made.

Locus 1 is a dark drown soil with lots of roots and organics. There are some rocks, approx 10 cm across and small eroded pieces of terracotta. There are 4 large stumps in the trench and 1 stump along the southern baulk. A pick pass was done in the western most meter. Picking was difficult due to a large number of roots.
A pick pass was done in the middle of the trench between meter 6 E and 7 E. Some root rot (white flecks in the soil) and lots of roots. There are flecks of carbon among the roots. A clayish soil is appearing in patches in the dark brown soil. A third pick pass was done between meter 7 E and 8 E. There were a similar concentration of roots in this pass as the previous pass. There was a few larger pieces of terracotta (4 cm across) and some of them were slightly burnt. A 4 th pick pass was completed in the eastern most meter of the trench. Similar to the other passes there was lots of roots and some pieces of terracotta. A 5 th pick pass was completed between 7 E and 8 E. This pass was difficult due to a large number of roots. The soil is still dark brown and contains a large amount of organic material. The floor of the trench is uneven and will be flattened out tomorrow.
