Locus 6 was excavated further. There was a sharp slope of the Locus 7 burn layer down to the east.  Two large rocks were uncovered on the eastern end, probably resting on the surface of the burn layer.


During the afternoon, it became apparent that there was a tile spread within the eastern baulk wall within Locus 6.  It contains larger pieces of tile than anything that

has come out of the trench thus far in Locus 6.  Large fragments of cover and pan tile, as well as at least one ridge pole tile, are all visible.  There was nearly a 30 cm discrepancy between the western side and the eastern side floor, and the burn layer still has not been exposed on the eastern end.  The soil had very few artifacts today, less than a latte box full of pottery and bone, and terracotta and plaster in smaller amounts than has been recovered earlier.

The largest rocks in the trench were:

Northern rock:  E 163.09, S 59.56, elev. 26.95

Southern rock:  E 162.98, S 59.11, elev. 26.92


Locus 6:

  • 9 terracotta fragments
  • 80 plaster fragments
  • 65 ceramic fragments
  • 8 bone fragments
