AM- Rain last night, there was evidence of slight puddling in the southern end of the trench but it was (comparatively) dry this morning. A pick pass was competed in the northern meter of the trench. The soil continues to retain its previous characteristics, though it is a little darker due to moisture. The patch of backfill dirt was removed and the soil beneath it is consistent with Locus 1. The large stone in the trench was lifted. The central and southern meters were picked, then the northern one again. The large stump was removed. Patches of slightly olive brown soil with a grainier texture are becoming evident. They were visible in the central and southern meter after they were picked again. Another pickpass was completed over all three sections, exposing a new soil type, which will be declared Locus 2. The trench was cleaned in preparation for photographs

PM- Locus 2 was declared and photographed

  • NE- 27.75
  • NW-27. 81
  • SW-27. 75
  • SE-27.72
  • Center- 27.74

for diagram.


Locus 1 closing stats -1/2 bowl of terracotta -10 pieces of pottery

-closing elevations = locus two opening elevations

-baulk => 10 pieces of terracotta

After closing elevations/opening elevations were taken Locus 2 was photographed and following that the northern meter was picked, then the central, then the southern. The remainder of the day was spent leveling and baulk walling the trench. The three stumps in the southwest meter were taken out as well. 3/4 bowls of terracotta, 3 pieces pottery

End of day elevations

  • NE- 27.75
  • NW- 27.68
  • SE- 27.74
  • SW - 27.67
  • Center- 27.66

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.
