The remaining portion of Locus 1 was removed in meters 4N 34W and 4N 35W. Only a small amount of pottery and terracotta was found in this area. The floor was leveled to meet Locus 3 which was completely uncovered today. Opening depths were taken and the baulk walls were trimmed. Locus 1 was then removed in meter 7N 33W in order to examine the rock formation. Meter 7N 33W has proven to be fairly productive. As we work closer to the rock formation, the higher the concentration of pottery and terracotta.

Locus 3 measurements

5N 33W       39.5cm bd

5N 34.44W  42.0cm bd

4N 34.5W    31.0cm bd

4N 36W       33.5cm bd

7N 36W       48.5cm bd

7N 33W       46.5cm bd

6N 34.5W    42.5cm bd

Locus 3 is characterized by light brown soil with white stone particulates throughout it.


Continued to work through Locus 1 in meter 7N 33W. Work has been slowed due to the volume and size of pottery found. An explanation for the volume of pottery found and other finds near the rock

formation may possibly be erosion. The rocks may have trapped this material as it was washed down the slope of the hill. Work ended at 3:30 pm today so that the students could attend a lecture. About 2 latte boxes of pottery were found containing some rather large fragments of impasto, base fragments, rim frags, and body sherds as well as several handle fragments. 1 1/2 latte boxes of terracotta were also found. One fragment was a large section of a cover tile.

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.
