Trench was strung, and datum was established on a tree 2.6 m from the northeast corner of the trench. Aerial photographs were taken. Locus 1 was declared. It was a dark brown topsoil with a large amount of humus (organic matter).

Opening elevations were taken.

NE: 71 cm BD / 27.26 m AE

NW: 74 cm BD / 27.23 m AE

SE: 80 cm BD / 27.07 m AE

SW: 82 cm BD / 27.05 m AE

Opening photographs were taken. Since there is a tree that will not be cut down, a square baulk roughly 60 x 60 cm will not be excavated this season. Pickpasses began moving east to west across the entire trench. The soil was sorted by hand into buckets, then again

into a wheelbarrow. Terracotta pieces are starting to appear. Roots were clipped and loose dirt was picked up.


A violent thunderstorm halted work for the day.


Locus 1 :

Terracotta: 15 pieces

Pottery: -

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.
