  • Trench 12 was inserted in the centre-north of the Western Area on an E-W orientation and measuring 20 x 3 metres. Topsoil (12001) was removed by machine, coming down onto an archaeologically sterile natural layer. A continuation of the water channel observed in Trench 13 was identified, but no artefacts were recovered from a sondage excavated to ascertain it’s depth, and no further excavation was conducted within the trench.
