Work began by lowering the western 1/4 meter of the trench and the apparent circular depression. it appears that the soil is consistent both within and outside of the depression. Locus 9 was opened and represents this depression. Locus 9 will be troweled down to discover the nature of the visibly rockless soil. Locus 9 opening elevations are:

Within the circular ridge of rock:

NE: 29.93 meters absolute elevation

SE: 29.92 meters absolute elevation

NW: 29.89 meters absolute elevation

SW: 29.90 meters absolute elevation

Center: 29.94 meters absolute elevation

Ridge of rock:

NE: 29.90 meters absolute elevation

SE: 29.96 meters absolute elevation

NW: 29.99 meters absolute elevation

SW: 29.95 meters absolute elevation

The diameter of Locus 9 is 83 centimeters in the North to South direction and 80 centimeters in the East to West.

There is a high concentration of terracotta in the North East corner of Locus 8 . Also, more bone ws found in the middle northern meter of the trench.

Within the circular depression, smaller rocks were found covering the entire surface 5-7 centuimeters beneath the initial excavtion.

The trench was scraped and cleaned and photos were taken of Locus 6 , Locus 8 , and Locus 9 . Closing elevations were also taken:

Locus 6 Closing elevations:

NE: 29.81 meters absolute elevation

SE: 29.87 meters absolute elevation

NW: 29.93 meters absolute elevation

SW: 29.93 meters absolute elevation

Center: 29.92 meters absolute elevation

Locus 8 Closing Elevations:

NE: 29.91 meters absolute elevation

SE: 29.91 meters absolute elevation

NW: 30.02meters absolute elevation

SW: 30.06 meters absolute elevation

Center: 29.97 meters absolute elevation

Locus 9 Closing Elevations:

NE: 29.87 meters absolute elevation

SE: 29.85 meters absolute elevation

NW: 29.87 meters absolute elevation

SW: 29.88 meters absolute elevation

Center: 29.83 meters absolute elevation

Locus 6 is the rock feature in the north of the trench before Locus 7 extension. Locus 8 is the rock feature and soil beneath locus 7 top soil. Locus 9 is the circular depression of soil within locus 8.

All loci were closed for the season.

Daily Totals:

Locus 8 : pottery: 1/4 box

terracotta:1/5 bowl

bone: 1 piece / 1/8 box

Locus 9 : pottery: 1 piece / 1/16 box

terracotta: 1/8 bowl

bone: 1 piece

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.
