Daily Log 31/7/15



This morning the trench was cleaned and closing photos were taken. Following this, the stone feature uncovered yesterday was declared a new locus\x97 Locus 13 . The feature measures circa 1 m to 1.1 m in diameter and is 2 m from the linear stone feature uncovered in VT-7. It is less than 2 m from the western wall of the trench. Prior to examining the feature, photos were taken, along with coordinates of the area around it, as well as upper and lower elevations.

Opening Trench for Locus 13

Locus 13 Coordinates (refer to trench drawing):

1. -4.73 m N/-12.30 m W

2. -4.60 m N/-11.14 m W

3. -5.76 m N/-10.78 m W

4. -6.04 m N/-12.17 m W


Upper Course:

a. 306.58 m A.E.

b. 306.51 m A.E.

c. 306.54 m A.E.

d. 306.42 m A.E.

e. 306.25 m A.E.

Lower Course/Floor Level:

1. 305.90 m A.E.

2. 305.26 m A.E.

3. 305.92 m A.E.

4. 305.98 m A.E.


A large stone was removed from the east of the feature and three more smaller one were excavated too. Once soil was removed from the area, it became apparent the feature was constructed of stones in the interior also, and onto the natural soil also.

The materials were recovered from Locus 13 . Following this, the trench's excavation was declared complete for the season and final coordinates were taken. Closing elevations were taken for 10 , 11 , 12 , and as no excavation occurred of the feature its coordinates and elevations remain the same.

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.
