Final Trench Summary

Final Trench Summary for CA-47

The goals for the CA-47 trench during the 2000 season were to explore the possibilities of habitation or occupation in the Civitate A area. Given the small amount of finds produced by the trench, these possibilities could not be supported. All ceramics found were located in high concentrations along the rock formation running along the 8N line of the trench and in the top 15cm of Locus 1. The concentrations of ceramic were most likely due to erosion. This would also explain why all fragments were heavily worn. With the exception of meter 7N 33W, the rest of the trench produced little to no finds. No evidence related to the kilns located near CA-47 was uncovered since no metal or slag was discovered with the exception of one modern nail in the topsoil.

Once Locus 1 was removed and the pre-galestra soil characteristic of locus 3 & 4 was uncovered, no finds were made. The cut that dropped into this soil was devoid of material. Due to the sterile soil of locus 3 and 4, the trench was closed. For more information on the associated trenches CA-43, CA-44, CA-45, and CA-46, see books ACL I , PN I , MCC I , and SJG I .
