Work began today at 7:00 am. We started the morning clearing more brush and clearing a path to the soil dump. We also triangulated point 8N 33W using points 8N 30W and 4N 30W. Then we stretched a measuring tape along points 8N 30W and 8N 33W to establish 8N 36W. An error was found in the placement of point 4N 33W, so we re-triangulated the point using 4N 30W and 8N 30W. After correcting 4N 33W, we ran a tape along that point and point 4N 30W to establish point 4N 36W. After the trench was staked out, more brush and grass wer removed using a rake.


A datum point was established on a tree between trench CA-46 and CA-47. Six opening depths were taken for Locus 1 using this datum. The datum is 24cm (above soil level) within meter 5N 32W on a tree.

Coordinates:                         Depth:

4.70N/33.35W                       27cm bd

4.27N/35.13W                       16cm bd

5.00N/34.65W                       17.8cm bd

7.59N/35.41W                       34.0cm bd

7.45N/33.35W                       36.0cm bd

6.09N/34.72W                       32.6cm bd

Locus 1 is characterized by organic material and dark soil composing the makeup of the topsoil. At the end of the day, a 10cm cut was made along the 4N line of the trench. A few small pieces of terracotta were found and a heavy terracotta flange from a pantile. A ridge of limestone or a stone formation of some kind runs along the 8N line of both trench CA-46 and CA-47. Other stones are present in CA-47 as well, however a specific pattern is not apparent.

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.
