Pick pass done in the western meter wide strip of the trench, soil remains consistent with Locus 2 —medium brown claylike soil. Soil sorted and cleared from the trench. A concentration of rocks is appearing in the northern half of the western meter—see drawing. Roots from the

tree permeate the rock collection, and may or may not affect the shape of the feature. Rocks vary in size from 2-3cm size up to 10-15cm size and are loosely packed. Now that feature has been recorded we will pick through it on the next round of pick axing, as it may not have intentionality or regularity. Pick pass begun in the center meter wide strip, soil consistent with Locus 2 . Soil sorted and cleared from the trench. In cleaning found rocchetto fragment.
