Locus 3 was opened in the eastern extension of the trench but did not extend across the entire extension, as the clear remains of an old test trench extended approximately 60 centimeters into the northeast corner of T 59; in order to minimize contamination between this old trench and T 59, the NE corner was omitted from Locus 3 and was left unexcavated, until the surface of T 59 was brought level with that of the old trench. Soil of Locus 3 consisted of topsoil, which in T 59 was a dark brown, grass-root-filled, loamy soil lying atop a medium brown colored, claylike soil. Both the initial and closing surfaces of Locus 3 sloped gently downward from north to south. Locus 3 contained many small rocks and larger tree roots but little archaeological material, with very small amounts of terracotta roofing tile, pottery, or bone found. Underlying the soil of Locus 3 were various rock features. In the northern third of the locus, found at the bottom of the stratum, was a linear feature of small-to-medium sized rocks, which is an eastern continuation of the northern linear rock feature found in Locus 1. In Locus 3, these rocks are generally smaller and do not extend all the way to the eastern baulk wall but stop approximately 1m short. To the north of this linear rock feature, which ran approximately east-west across the trench, very few rocks were found, but to the south of the linear rock feature were scatters of small rocks, which were noticeably less densely packed than the rocks of the linear rock feature itself. In the southern half of the locus was a concentration of large rocks. Locus 3 was opened in the eastern extension of the trench and is equivalent to Locus 1 in the original portion of the trench and Locus 2 in the western extension.
