Owing to the lighter soil in Locus 4 it was decided to declare it a new locus. Locus 5 is an olive-green clay, with some small rocks and roots. It extends from the south-eastern meter and covers most of the western half of the trench. Within this area is a group of medium (15-30cm) sized rocks. The trench was prepared and cleaned. Photos and elevations were taken.

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.
