Today we sub-sectioned the trench and excavated down through the northern third through another garden soil layer (No. 3 below the modern gravel/demolition build up).

We also sieved a lot of this material which turned up several fragments of window glass, a 'musket' ball, lots of animal bone (including fish bone), occasional bits of shell and clinker, and 3 small copper-alloy pins each about an inch in length. We also found our first bit of unglazed coarseware pottery and a few more clay pipe stems fragments, although they are a lot less common than was the case in the overlying deposits. We reckon we are still in post-Plantation, 17th-18th century deposits.
