IV. Daily Log

A.M./P.M.    28 June 2016

T-83 was laid out this morning.

Opening photos were taken and co-ordinate elevations measured.  The surface layer is designated locus 1 .  Before photos were taken brush, plants and other organics were removed. Locus 1 is dark brown in color

and is humus in nature.

Opening co-ordinate elevations for locus 1 :

NW(80-E/43-S): 26.43 m. above absolute elevation (20 cm. below datum point)

NE(84-E/43-S): 26.42 m. above absolute elevation (21 cm. below datum point)

SE(84-E/46-S): 26.17 m. above absolute elevation (46 cm. below datum point)

SW(80-E/46-S): 26.07 m. above absolute elevation (56 cm. below datum point)

A pick-pass was carried out across the entire trench, which was lowered approximately 2-3 cm.  A small bronze disk was found.

Special Finds:

#1. Locus 1 83.5-E/44.4-S 26.26 m. above absolute elevation (37 cm. below datum point) Bronze disk

Anther pick-pass was started.  This pass covered 3/4 of the trench excepting the southeast corner.  This pass lowered the covered area approximately 2-3 cm.  The soil of this locus contains numerous roots and stones fist-size and smaller.  Approximately 20 small well-worn fragments of terracotta were recovered.  Five sherds of pottery were found.

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.
