T-75 was laid out as a 2x4 meter trench, then opening photographs and opening elevations were taken, and the trench was declared open. The opening coordinates and elevations of T-75 are as follows:
NW Corner (102E, 44S): 27.05 m AE
NE Corner (104E, 44S): 27.03 m AE
SE Corner (104E, 48S): 26.79 m AE
SW Corner (102E, 48S): 26.46 m AE
Locus 1 , which extends across the entire trench, is a dark brown humus layer dense with organic material. Currently there are three stumps in the trench. One is located at approximately 103.45E/45.50S; another at approximately 103E/48S; and the third at approximately 103.45E/47.50S. Additionally, a rock approximately 10 cm in size is located at approximately 103.10E/43S.
A pick pass was executed in the southernmost meter of the trench, and the soil was hand sorted into buckets using
trowels and hand picks.
Another pick pass was executed in the southernmost meter with the soil being hand sorted into buckets using trowels and hand picks.
Small concentrations of terra cotta, pottery, and bone have been recovered.
A pick pass was executed in the southern half of the trench. The soil continues to be dense with organic material.
During clearing a piece of vitrified terra cotta was recovered.

The afternoon began with a pick pass in the southern half of the trench in order to lower the level of the trench. Soil was then sorted by hand into buckets using hand picks and trowels. The soil continues to be dense with organic material with small concentrations of terra cotta and pottery being recovered.
A pick pass was executed in the northeastern corner of the trench. After the soil was cleared roots were clipped until the end of the day.
Daily Totals :
Locus 1 :
Terra Cotta: 3 bowls
