Total slag: 7 fragments

Total weight: 163 grams

Very few metals were recovered from T 59. Only two pieces of bronze were found in the trench, both in Locus 5 , a contextualized stratum defined by the rock features that comprised it. Both fragments were unidentifiable fragments or bronze flakes.

Evidence for metal production was scant in T 59. Only seven fragments of iron slag were recovered from the trench, both from contextualized and decontextualized deposits. From topsoil, which was Loci 1 , 2 , and 3 , three fragments of slag were recovered (one fragment from Locus 1 and two fragments from Locus 2 ). In total, these fragments weighed 80 grams, nearly half of the total slag recovered from T 59. The remaining examples of slag came from the contextualized deposits of Loci 4 and 5 , with Locus 4 yielding one piece of slag and Locus 5 three fragments. Slag from contextualized deposits amounted to just over half of all slag recovered from T 59.

It should be noted that four fragments of possible slag were originally identified in Locus 2 , but only two of these four fragments were actually slag.

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.
