Trench Layout

Trench Layout

VT7, VT8, and VT9 were established and laid out parallel to the eastern edge of the Tennis Court. They were triangulated from a 15 meter line running approximately N.NW/ S. SW. Consequently, the trenches are not orientated according to a true north-south axis. Later a Total Station established the co-ordinates of the trenches in relation to a grid established in for the 2006 excavations in Vescovadi di Murlo. The same origin pointless used to calculate the datum as that used in 2006.

Trench coordinates and Elevations:

a. (N.W.): -6.14m/-13.54m

b. ((N.E.): -5.17m/-8.63m

c. (S.E.): -8.09m/-8.05m

d. (S.W.): -9.09m/-12.97m

N.W. 307.08m AE

N.E. 307.07m A.E.

S.E. 307.08m A.E.

S.W. 307.12m A.E.

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.
