The intended method of excavation for the 2010 field season is to use trowels to remove soil from around the surface rocks to further expose their arrangement.  After doing so, the rocks will be removed and trowels as well as picks will be used to excavate the layers beneath.  Soil will be sorted in the trench into buckets before removed from the trench.  All bulk terracotta found in the trench will be counted on site in bowls that are approximately 31cm in diameter and 8.5 cm in depth.  This terracotta will be counted and recorded on site before dumped.  The bulk terracotta as well as all soil removed from the trench will be placed in a dump approximately 15 meters to the south east of the trench. All pottery and bone found within the trench will be placed in latte boxes which are approximately 23x9x6 cm.  These finds will be taken down from the site to be sorted after dry brushing.  The location of special finds within the trench will be recorded using coordinates that are on the master grid as well as elevations taken from a datum point of 32.00 mAE located on a tree beyond the eastern baulk wall.  The coordinates used refer to the master grid system est. in 1991 as described in TT1 p. 3

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.
