Locus 2 was established in the morning.  The soil color is only slightly less brown than that of locus 1 due to less organic material.  However, there are still plenty of roots in this locus.  Approximately a dozen small well-worn pieces of terracotta were recovered in cleaning up the trench to establish locus 2.

Depth measurements were taken:

  • NW corner (176.8-E/49.3-S) = 27.93 m. above absolute elevation
  • SW corner (176.3-E/52-S) = 27.89 m. above absolute elevation
  • SE corner (180-E/52.2-S) = 27.87 m. above absolute elevation
  • NE corner (180-E/49.3-S) = 27.93 m. above absolute elevation

Photos were taken of locus 2.  Approximately 2.5 bowls (24 cm. in diameter, 7 cm. in depth) of terracotta fragments were found.  Twelve fragments of bone were recovered.  Thirtyeight pottery sherds were found (1-Medieval body, 4-impasto base, 1-impasto rim,

Additional Depth Measurements for Locus 2:

  • 177-E/52-S = 27.89 m. above absolute elevation (estimated)
  • 177-E/52.1-S = 27.89 m. above absolute elevation (estimated)

17 impasto body, 16-fine impasto body).  One terracotta fragment, possibly from a statue was made a special find (#1).  One side shows a fininshed surface while the fragment appears to be made from two pieces of terracotta pressed together.

Locus 2 was taken down approximately 5 cm. today.
