Trench T28N was placed on the south flank slope near the workshop by working from the grid point of tesoro -26 south 54S 186E and then 72S 186E and the grid lines from the magnotometer survey. The trench is positioned around the low point (80S 197E) revealed by the magnotometer survery, profile B. The trench, T-28 North, measures 4m x 2m and its coordinates are 79S 195E, 79S 199E, 81S 195E, and 81S 199E. The surface was designated locus 1 and was cleared of loose debris.

Beginning depths were taken. The datum point was established at the South end of the trench on a large tree at 81.75S 198E and is 76.8cm above soil.

Locus 1, the humus and topsoil, is even throughout the trench. A 5cm surface cut was made in meters 79S 195E and 80S 195E. \xbc cassette of terracotta and 1/16 latte box of pottery was recovered.

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.
