Final day of excavation.  The trench was only taken down in depth from morning until lunch.  More of Locus 10, rock packing, was excavated today with the pickaxe approximately 8cm.  This area of packing appears to have more material than the packing near the wall.  Along with the rocks and red clay-like soil are several very worn pottery fragments.  1 full latte box was removed from the area, as opposed to 3 fragments from the previously excavated packing.  Several rocks were removed, ranging from about 8-15cm in size.  Unfortunately, due to time constraints, the bottome of the locus was not reached.

The couple of hours after lunch were spent cleaning the baulk walls, where an impasto rochetto fragment was discovered.

Curiously found in the packing level was a forno fragment and a chunck of bronze.  The area will be reopened next year, but as for now, excavation is complete.  One ridged impasto fragment was also uncovered.

Note: The packing here began approximately 10cm higher than the one adjoining the wall.  This may account for a natural slope in the land, or an artificial slope created for the purpose of terracing.
