Work resumed in CA 69. The northern and southern parts of the trench were picked twice. Very few pieces of terracotta recovered, some small rocks. Soil contained less inclusions of organic material than previously. Further pick passes revealed less material in the soil, which also appeared lighter in colour. Stumps in northern part of the trench were removed along with rocks. Two pieces of pottery found.


Due to soil change it was decided to prepare the trench for the declaration of a new locus. Roots trimmed and walls baulked. Locus 2 declared across the trench. Photos taken and munsel soil reading taken, along with elevations.

Locus 2 Munsel:

Dry 3/3 10YR dark brown

Wet 3/2 10YR very dark greyish brown

Elevations (Opening Locus 2):

NE 2683cm AE

SE 2717cm AE

SW 2729cm AE

NW 2682cm AE

Trench picked again. Soil flaky and sandy in texture. No rocks or material recovered. Additionally very few roots present.

Closing Elevations:

NE- 2676cm AE

SE- 2712cm AE

SW- 2722cm AE

NW 2682cm AE
