The remaining boundaries of the trench were laid out. A datum point* was set up 52cm above the ground surface. Surface elevation were taken around the trench at intervals of one meter. Elevations ranged from 11 cm above datum (ad) to 1cm below datum (bd) throughout the trench.
The first cut was taken through meters E186/S49-50. The brown topsoil layer contained 5-10 cm stones, numerous roots, and terracotta fragments. This topsoil layer was designated locus 1n, and using a Munsell chart, the soil of locus 1n was found to be 10YR 4/3 (brown). The cut was continued through the topsoil into meters E187/S49-50. Depths were recorded at the end of the morning and ranged 4-11 cm bd.
Approximately 115 fragments of terracotta were recovered, along with 3 bone fragments, and 16 pieces of ceramic, mainly coarseware and impasto.
Photographs taken before work began. ( See pg. 46 )
* The datum point was set up in a tree, located outside the southwestern corner of the trench.
