The excavation of T-73 this year was partially successful. The trench was opened to help understand the linear stone packing to the south in T-57. Very quickly below the top soil stones were encountered across the whole floor of the trench with very few artifacts present. There was no decipherable pattern to them, therefore part of the trench was excavated through the stones. Soon it was discovered that the stones were in fact bedrock and naturally occuring. Therefore while we have added to the understanding of the natural topography of the site, nothing can be said about the stratigraphy of Tesoro West or the use of the features south of T-73. It appears that the foundation (a linear stone packing) in T-70 and T-57 abutted the bedrock in T-73. The closing coordinates of T-73 are the same since no extensions were done.

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.
