Vitrified Terra Cotta Analysis:

Several fragments of vitrified terra cotta, twenty three in total, were recovered from T 62 during the 2014 excavation season. Locus 8 had the most fragments with seven, but it was not an overwhelming majority. Of the total fragments one with slag attached was cataloged, 20140024

20140024 . The presence of vitrified terra cotta indicates high temperatures and burning of the artifacts. While there are many circumstances under which the terra cotta may have become vitrified, both from natural and human factors, when coupled with the high quantities of slag present in Civitate A twenty meters to the west as well as in T 62 these fragments may lend further credence to the idea that this area of the site was used as a location for small scale metal production.

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.
