AM The morning began with a pickpass in the eastern half of the trench, north of the slope. A lighter, yellowy, sandy soil was revealed in the western area, north of the slope. The new soil began appearing in patches after the second pickpass in the same area. The slope was then picked in an attempt to find this same soil change. Locus 1 continues to produce small amounts of tile and pottery.

PM The remaining soil was cleaned from the face of the slope. The area below the slope, making uping up the area centered around the southwest corner, cut from the midpoint of the western baulk to the southeast corner, was picked next. This pass revealed a graying yellow soil,chalky to the touch and heavily invested with small and medium stones of seemingly degrading stone. This area was nearly devoid of tile. The lighter soil wevealed is distinct compared to that of the northern, up slope section. This northern area is being handpicked level and dropped to determine if it’s a distinct locus.
