Daily Log- 2/7/2010



A pick pass was done in the western half (5 E – 7 E). There is still many roots in the soil but a clayish medium brown soil is appearing under locus 1 . Bits of terracotta (2-5 cm) are appearing in the soil. The loose soil was scraped and sorted into buckets. The eastern 2 meters of the trench was picked (7 E- 9 E); more roots were exposed. In the northeastern corner of the trench very loose soil was exposed, the corner was believed to be from a previous trench but the grass and brush had grown in that it was unclear if it was backfill, the soil in that corner looked identical to the rest of the trench. We will pick up the rest of the soil there and level the corner, then we will leave that corner alone as we excavate the rest of the trench. A pitted piece of flange was uncovered in this pick pass. While clipping roots a piece of handle was uncovered. A third pick pass was done in the eastern half of the trench, the soil is beginning to look like the clayish soil found in the middle of the trench. While cleaning the pass a fragments of a shell was found (special find #1). The stumps were also defined.
