Date:   2009/06/05
Stratum:   50% tiles, pebbles, angular cobbles, pottery
Description:   Top slope of the context is level. Soil color is dark reddish brown. Soil is Compact poorly sorted sandy silt.
Notes:   6602 was opened as a patchy floor cut by the circular pit to the south (6224), the large N-S robbing trench to the west (XXXX) and is patchy to the east and north.
This is a nice piece of floor, with flat-lying sherds and tiles, small pebbles and small cobbles which do not proturude far above the surface. Because of the patchy condition to the east and north, our assumption is that this is an outside surface.
