In the last few days of the dig, attention was focused on F13-07 in the units N249 E157 & E158. The feature is quite large, measuring more than a meter and a half E-W and stretching a meter before disappearing into the north wall. Next season work will resume on this important discovery.

Laurie was the screener for most of the the feature processing.

Ryan and Amanda work around some newly emerging pottery fragments.



The pottery fragments turned out to be just the tips of a large section of a pot, which Ariel and Tim worked on uncovering.

This sizeable remnant is a part of the lower "bowl" section of a ceramic vessel.

Daniel worked carefully to remove the pot, keeping all the pieces together to aid reconstruction.

 Here is an overview of F13-07, complete with adjacent postmolds and the pottery in situ.
