Trench Layout

Trench layout

The boundaries of the trench will be the same as for the previous season. In 2007, the trench was laid out based on a line shot with a laser level. The northern boundary of T-46 was extended 10m to the east, and the two northern corners of T-48 were triangulated from this baseline. Once the two northern corners were established, the remaining corners of the trench were triangulated off of the two northern corners. In this fashion, a 3x4m trench was established with the NW corner at a location of 52S/194E.

T-48 is adjacent to T-23. In the 2007 season, T-48 was extended to include T-23. As T-23 was excavated prior to the establishment of the master grid system, the boundaries of T-23 do not exist on master grid lines; thus the eastern baulk wall of T-48 is not completely in line with the master grid. The coordinates of the four corners of the trench at the time of the start of the 2008 season are as follows:

  • NW corner: 52S/194E
  • NE corner: 52S/198E
  • SE corner: 54.90S/198E
  • SW corner: 55S/194E

A datum point with an absolute elevation of 28.19m will be established on a tree just to the south of the trench.

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.
