Trench CB-58 was opened this morning.  Brush and loose stones were removed.  The trench was staked out.  Opening photos were taken and co-ordinate depths measured.


Opening co-ordinates:

NW (42-E/53-S):  39 cm. below datum point =  26.06 m. above absolute elevation

NE (46-E/53-S):  53 cm. below datum point =  25.92 m. above absolute elevation

SE (46-E/57-S):  74 cm. below datum point =  25.71 m. above absolute elevation

SW (42-E/57-S):  49 cm. below datum point =  25.96 m. above absolute elevation

Center of trench:  59 cm. below datum point = 25.86 m. above absolute elevation

The surface area of the trench is covered in organic matter and the soil is dark-brown in color.  This surface deposit was declared locus 1.  After the tench was set up, a pick-pass was begun starting from the western side, moving from north to south (1 m. x 4 m.) and approximately 10 cm. in depth.  The soil removed from this locus contains numerous small stones (fist-size and smaller).  The pick-pass was not completed.  Approximately 2/3 bowl of terracotta fragments

was recovered.  All the terracotta was highly worn.

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.
