Did approximately a 10cm cut over entire trench (picking up where it was left off on sunday) to remove locus 9.  The locus was mostly sterile.  Beneath it, though, appeared to be a soil change so most of the soil from locus 9 was removed to see the full extent of the soil change, which covered the entire trench as well.  Thus, locus 10 was born.  It had a soil that was a rich brown with light yellow and orange streaks and terracotta, plaster, and charcoal specks.  It also has several large terracotta fragments, leading us to believe that it may be the tile fall.  The terracotta will be left in the gorund until the locus is fully uncovered to attempt to discern the tile distribution.  The following points were taken from locus 10:

Began 5cm cut in meter 51S161E and covered meters 52S161E, 53S161E, and 51S160E.  1/4 cassetta of terracotta was found, locus 9 produced approximately 10 pieces of bulk pottery, and locus 10 produced approximately 8 pieces of bulk pottery.  Also, locus 10 produced a special find.

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.
