Topsoil was taken off at the remaining dike. The soil immediately at the wedge of the trench was black but did not produce any fragments in the second layer except a few small pieces of tiles and some coarse pottery. Large, flat areas of bed rock covered the section up to 6m. facing E from the W edge (app. grid A-F 10-12). The soil surrounding the bedrock to the S and E was all yellow galestra. In between this yellow soil appeared a patch of black soil (for location see plan) mixed with sizeable stones. This soil produced almost 1 box of shards, impasto of varying thickness and shape. An almost complete pot was

excavated and a base (?) of a vase with a large vertical handle. In all about 2 boxes of shards were collected from the section A J 10-16.

Work continued further towards the west. Stones and bedrock had already appeared there in the second layer, and the black soil surrounding the stones produced only small pieces of tiles, about 1 box.

Due to rain in the afternoon work was stopped in the W section of the trench, and the trench was extended further E, towards the agger. The width of the excavated section was ca. 6m and the same width was kept for the new cut. The W part of the trench was taken

down to a depth of ca 40cm. The E part seems to be taken up by bedrock and large stones of varying height, with pockets of soil in between. At the very E edge of the trench the original testcut CA1 was included.
