Pick pass begun in SW and NE corners to leave room to work in.  Since it is the burn layer there is a significant amount of pottery and bone- there is less terracotta than there has been in precious loci.  There is an increase in the amount of bucchero though no pieces of any significant size.  Using the same datum point the top of the burn layer was measured in the W baulk of T26- the burn layer began at 165 cm bd.


Tools: pick axe, trowels, buckets, dustpand, line level, plumb bob, wheelbarrow, tape measure.

Soil: charcoal infused soft crumbly
