Work began with a pick pass of Locus 2 , starting in the southern-half of the trench and working north.  Soil remains dark olive-brown and claylike, with many roots and not much material.  Soil is shovelled into buckets and sorted over the wheelbarrow.

A second pick pass was completed.  Soil remains dark olive-brown, somewhat clay-like, with many roots, although the amount of material recovered seems to have increased slightly.  Soil continues to be shovelled into buckets and sorted in the wheelbarrow.  A third pick pass was then completed, with the soil remaining the same; soil continues to be sorted in the same manner.  A fourth pick pass was begun, but only the southern half of the trench was picked.  Soil and material remains the same and soil is sorted in the same manner.


The pick pass begun in the morning was completed, with the northern half of the trench being brought down to the same elevation as the southern half.  Soil remains dark olive-brown, but there is slightly more pottery, as well as the first pieces of bone.  Additionally,

some gray, chalky, flaky soil has begun to appear during this pick pass, indicating that we may be reaching the end of Locus 2 .  During this pick pass, a sherd of black-slipped pottery (Find #1) was recovered from the wheelbarrow.

A fifth pick pass was begun in the northern half of the trench.  A little more gray, flaky soil began to appear amongst the dark, olive-brown soil.  Soil contined to be shovelled into buckets and sorted over the wheelbarrow.

After this half pick pass was completed, it was decided to trim the baulk walls.
