At the beginning of the 2005 season, T-44 ARN II (ARN II pg.15 ) discovered a linear grouping of small/medium (3-10 cm) stones, one large fieldstone, and terracotta inclusions which were found running SW to NE in the SE corner of the trench.

A profile of these stones is visible in the baulk of JPB I T-40 B in the SW corner of the trench excavated in the 2004 season. However if the rock formation did continue through JPB I it seems likely that it would have been disturbed by an extensive root system. (Note: JPB I pg. 29)

In light of this, trenches A-D are being opened to:

1) Investigate the extent of the rock formation found in T-44.

2)  To determine the date, context, and function of the rock formation should it in fact continue.

3) To better understand the slope and stratigraphy of the area.

T-44 C is located south of the rock formation found in T-44. * See

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.
