The excavation of CB 47 and CB 47 extension in 2011 can be seen as somewhat successful. While no new architectural features were uncovered in the trench, it did provide good stratigraphic information in relation to the surrounding CB 45, CB 46, and CB 49 trenches. The rock packings found in these three trenches were not seen to extend southward into CB 47 or its extension, clearly delineating the edge of the feature.

Additionally, the presence of material in the deteriorating rock soil of Locus 3 indicates human activity at that level. It is possible that these artifacts were redeposited within the soil matrix after some sort of cutting was made by ancient inhabitants of Poggio Civitate. The cutting could be related to the construction of the rock packings to the north of CB 47 and CB 47 extension.

More excavation is needed in this area of Civitate B to understand what behavior is taking place, and if it has any relation to the nearby Archaic period burials or the activity in the Civitate A area associated with the well.

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.
