IV. Daily Log

A.M./P.M.     20 July 2016

Some defining of the stones in locus 14 was done, then the locus was closed.  Closing photos were taken.  Two fragments of terracotta were recovered, and two sherds of pottery were found during defining.

The two square meters of the southern area enclosed by locus 14 was now declared locus 15 .  Photos and elevations were taken (three of the elevations were done yesterday).

Opening co-ordinate elevations for locus 15 :

NW(83-E/49-S): 25.60 m. above absolute elevation (103 cm. below datum point)

NE(85-E/49-S): 25.60 m. above absolute elevation (103 cm. below datum point)

SE(85-E/50-S): 25.53 m. above absolute elevation (110 cm. below datum point)

SW(83-E/50-S): 25.59 m. above absolute elevation (104 cm. below datum point)

Locus 15 is to be a sounding to reach bedrock or sterile soil.  The soil of this locus is olive-brown in color.

The sounding was taken down approximately 40 cm.  Decayed limestone and sterile soil are appearing at the bottom.  Fragments of terracotta and pottery sherds were found all the way down to the bottom.  The fragments of terracotta in this sounding have clean breaks for the most part and are two to three times larger on the average than that found in previous loci.  Approximately 3/4 bowl of terracotta fragments was recovered.  Approximately 1/2 latte-box of pottery sherds, including some pieces of bone was found.  One special find was made.

Special Finds:

#1. Locus 15 84.0-E/49.2-S 25.44 m. above absolute elevation (119 cm. below datum point) Bronze chunk

End of day co-ordinate elevations for locus 15 :

NW(83-E/49-S): 25.12 m. above absolute elevation (151 cm. below datum point)

NE(85-E/49-S): 25.18 m. above absolute elevation (145 cm. below datum point)

SE(85-E/50-S): 25.14 m. above absolute elevation (149 cm. below datum point)

SW(83-E/50-S): 25.12 m. above absolute elevation (151 cm. below datum point)

Editorial Note

Open Context editors work with data contributors to annotate datasets to shared vocabularies, ontologies, and other standards using 'Linked Open Data' (LOD) methods.

The annotations presented above approximate some of the meaning in this contributed data record to concepts defined in shared standards. These annotations are provided to help make datasets easier to understand and use with other datasets.
