This morning the rest of the gylestra-like soil was removed,giving way to a darker yellowish-brown layer filled with terracotta, charcoal, and ceramics.  This soil is designated Locus 3 .  Its elevations are as follows:  northwest corner 27.47 m, northeast corner 27.53 m, southeast corner 27.52 m, southwest corner 27.48 m, and

center 27.51 m.  After measurements were taken, a pick pass was done before lunch.


A strange piece of ceramic was recovered from Locus 3, which initially looked like the rim of a coarseware vessel, but on a closer lok this did not seem to be the case.  Three teeth fragments and other pieces of bone were also recovered.

  • 56 pieces of terracotta
  • 22 fragments of ceramic
  • 1 piece of plaster

Locus 3:
