Supplimental Find 1:  Stamped Bucchero Fragment, 20100019


Found in bulk pottery for Locus 7.


Drawing of Find 2.



In order to explore the extent of the bedrock sheeting it was decided to extend the trench to the north and to the east. Photographs taken of Locus 4 and 5 . The trench now looks like: (drawing). The trench has been extended one meter to the east and one meter to the west, but we will primarily at this time be excavating the first 30cm of each just outside the old trenchÂ’s boundaries. Locus 4 is declared in the north 30cm, and is a deep brown, organic filled humus layer. Locus 5 is declared in the east 30cm and is also the same deep brown, organic filled



humus layer. Locus 5 contains one stump, about 9.00N/2.00W. Opening elevations for Locus 4 :

Pick passes done in Locus 4 and 5 . Coming down on new soil, so baulk walling, root clipping, and cleaning done. Opening photographs for Locus 6 and 7 taken. Opening elevations taken for Locus 6 and 7 :

Locus 6 is a medium brown, claylike soil, located beneath Locus 4 . Locus 7 is also a medium brown claylike soil, located beneath Locus 5 . Pick pass done over both Locus 6 and 7 . Soil remains consistent with Locus 6 and 7 respectively. In cleaning found coil made handle fragment. Has modern break as well.

Locus 7

Locus 6 and 7 both producing relatively large amounts of material. In Locus 6 bedrock is being revealed, but the extend of it has not been found yet. In cleaning found coil made rim fragments.

Locus 6




Pick passing continued in Loci 6 and 7 . Soil remains consistent with each Locus respectively. Soil sorted and cleaned from the trench. In cleaning recovered a piece of worked chert.
