The baulks were trimmed and cleaned. Few pieces of pottery and terracotta were being recovered. A piece of slag was found in the area of the stump along the southern, but was recorded as bulk slag. Also while trimming along the southern baulk a piece of vitrified terracotta was recovered (special find #1).
Special Find #1
5.2-5.7 E, 1.24 N
The eastern half of the trench was lightly picked to further expose the new flaky soil. A sketch of the trench was made to illustrate the rocks that were exposed yesterday. There appears to be a roughtly circular formation in the rocks, before we remove them, in addition to the illustration, we will photograph them. A second light pick pass was done in the eastern half of the trench, more terracotta, pottery, and some bone is being turned up.
A photo was taken of the rock feature and the rest of the trench before we continued exposing the flaky soil under locus 2 . A pick pass was done in the eastern half
of the trench. More of the flaky soil is in the meter between 8E and 9E, we are picking more between 7E and 8E since no new soil is being exposed yet. Around the roots of stump D a darker soil is still appearing, however the rest of the trench is still a medium brown. There is more of the flaky soil appearing along the eastern most meter, this soil appears to be sloping downward toward the south. We continued to trowel off the medium brown clay like soil, patches of chaulky soil is being exposed but none of the patches extend far. While troweling a metal bead was uncovered (Special find #2) and worked chert was found (S.F. #3)
