All loci in T-57 excavated in 2015 yielded pottery. Across loci, most pottery sherds were body fragments. Of the pottery sherds found in Locus 15 , four were impasto body fragments, one was an impasto rim, and the last was a fine impasto rim. Locus 16 produced the most pottery (84%). Most of the sherds were impasto body fragments, followed by fine impasto body fragments. There was a small amount of bucchero and coarseware. A body fragment with finial attachment (AJC VI, pg 273) as well as a piece of ridged pottery (AJC VI, pg 273) were also found in Locus 16. Most of the pottery recovered in Locus 16 was found to the west of the linear rock packing. Locus 17 was located around the root system of a tree, suggesting that the few pieces of pottery found were subject

to bioturbation. The pottery sherds found in this locus were mostly impasto and fine impasto fragments. Locus 18 , which extended across the portion of the linear rock packing excavated in 2014, yielded little pottery. The pottery sherds found were mostly impasto and fine impasto fragments. Locus 19 , located around the same root system as Locus 17 , yielded only courseware, impasto, and fine impasto body fragments. Overall it is important to note that the most pottery was found outside of the linear rock packing, and that within the linear rock packing very little pottery was recovered.
