The entire area of the trench was declared locus 4 this morning.  Opening photos were taken.  The soil of this locus is yellowish-brown.  It is less crumbly and more clay-like than locus 3.  A pick-pass was carried out over the entire trench.  The trench was lowered approximately 5-20 cm. with the northwest corner being lowered the most.  The sides of the locus were trimmed. Approximately 10 bowls of terracotta fragments were recovered.  Approximately 1 1/3 latte boxes of pottery sherds were found.  Three pieces of bone and a tooth were recovered.  Two pieces of bulk iron slag were collected.  There were 5 special finds.

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.
