More recently, in 2007, CC7 revealed an oval concentration of carbon rich soil capped with small rocks, all roughly 8-10 cm in size (see KGM I). The horizontal extent of this oval was subsequently exposed (KGM I and JAH/JLL II). In 2008 and 2009 the deposit was excavated. A large number of fragments of ceramic vessels, bones, weaving implements and a concentration of murex shells were recovered. It has been interpreted that the feature an was intentionally excavated, filled, and capped midden that was contemporary with the early phase of the Orientalizing workshop (see AJC/ARR I and II).

As a result of the evidence for occupation in Civitate B and in Civitate C the 2012 season will focus on the eastern area of Civitate B between the two areas of previous excavation, south of the Medieval road and 50 meters from the Archaic building. CB 57 will be opened in conjunction with CB 52, CB 53, CB 54, CB 55, and CB 56 to form an area of open excavation. There will be no baulk walls between adjoining trenches. This should allow for a better overview of

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.
