Opening Elevations were taken.

SE= 25.58 mAE

SW= 25.71 mAE

Center= 25.79 mAE

The rocks in the southwestern corner continued to be defined with trowels and small picks. Roots were clipped. The medium stump on the western baulk was cleaned and roots cut. Several small stumps were removed from the trench. Upon cleaning the rocks in the southwest it was noticed that the rocks were densely packed there. Large rocks ~25-40 cm in length were filled in with smaller 8-10 cm large rocks. Once these rocks were defined, we mored east and north to define the edge of the packing. As we continued to clean toward the southeastern corner, less rocks were uncovered. A bronze disc was found while cleaning (SF #1)

Special Find #1

Bronze Disc

Locus 1

After cleaning up the loose soil it was determined that the northeastern corner still had locus 1 covering it. This area was then picked, soil was sorted into buckets and dumped. Part of the stump along the north baulk was removed with a pick. The northern baulk wall was trimmed.

The rocks in the southwest were further defined. It seems that there are two packings of rocks. In the southwest there is a packing of small fist sized rocks (8-10 cm in size). Northeast of this are larger rocks (20-40 cm in size) that have bits of carbon included in between them. The smaller packing seems to continue south into CB 57 and east into CB 55. The larger rocks are mostly in the center of the trench. The dark brown soil of locus 1 seems to have been removed from the trench, closing elevations and photos for locus 1 was taken. 3 new loci were declared for the trench. The loci were drawn, elevations and coordinates were measured and photos were taken.

Locus 2 is the packing of small 8-10 cm rocks in the southwestern corner, it is the continuation of a rock packing into CB 55 and 57. Locus 3 is a packing of medium sized rocks (20-40 cm) running from the southwest to the northeast through the center of the trench. No tile or ceramics have been found but flecks of carbon are appearing. Locus 4 surrounds the 2 loci through the rest of the trench. It appears to be a yellow brown soil with less organic material, there are few to no rocks in this locus.

Bulk Finds:

Tile- 2 medium-small pieces

Editorial Note

Open Context editors work with data contributors to annotate datasets to shared vocabularies, ontologies, and other standards using 'Linked Open Data' (LOD) methods.

The annotations presented above approximate some of the meaning in this contributed data record to concepts defined in shared standards. These annotations are provided to help make datasets easier to understand and use with other datasets.
