Due to rain overnight, limited excavation possible in T 62. Continued removing soil beneath the tree stump in order to hopefully remove more of its roots and maybe the stump itself. During removal of the soil beneath the stump, one fragment of terra cotta 3cm in length removed. After several more roots were severed, the remaining portion of the stump removed. Area beneath where the stump was is drier than the rest of the trench, so hand pick used to level the area to that of the rest of Locus 3 . Soil remains consistent with Locus 3 ; so far one fragment of ceramic, broken during excavation, recovered. During leveling, a bone inlay found.

Work briefly continued in Locus 3 until an area near the northwestern corner where soil too wet to proceed. One fragment of bone found before work suspended. Locus 4 and Locus 5 are also both still too wet to excavate.

Daily Totals:

Terra cotta: 1 fragment

Pottery: 4 fragments

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.
