TOTAL: 490 g 430 g

Total Slag: 920 g

A large amount of slag was recovered from CA-81 in the 2013 season, with a total weight of 920 g. The greatest incidence of fragments was in locus 2 , with a total weight of 305 g. A few large pieces of slag were also catalogued, ( 20130123 ) and ( 20130210 ), as well as a piece of slag with adhered terracotta ( 20130207 ). The presence of slag implies that some type of metal production was taking place near CA-81, if not necessarily in the precise location. In addition, there were two crucible framgents recovered, but not catalogued from CA-81 and it's extensions.

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.
