Excavated oven floor  after checking with AR about samples. Down onto  which appears to be material laid as an oven floor but which was not affected by the heat. Planned and excavated  up to section line. This exposed a rim of structural material at the rear (S.) end of the oven  planned. - [called off site early] Work a little slow at the moment - everything appears stratigraphically under oven 252 which makes it difficult to do anything else in space 150/151. Half-sectioning features also slows things down & leaves backlog of half finished plans etc. Also delays waiting for level.
In space 150 leaving a baulk across the E. end has also caused problems since impossible to follow layers through - making it a more difficult task to excavate the plaster floors. Maybe could lose this baulk and leave a smaller block for WM to sample. TC up this afternoon - planned plaster wall  against feature at E. end of space 150. However not certain that this stratigraphically free at present.Entered By: Richard Turnbull
