Began removing visible ceramic material. Attempted to keep material from the same vessel together. Recovered large ammounts of pottery, as well as pan and cover tiles which are far more intact than those previously found in this trench.


Began to also remove small rocks, which were susequently piled up next to the tile dump directly west of the trench.

The rocky surface of Locus 4 in some ways resembles a feature uncovered this season TNF1 (LER 2) just north of the upper (archaic) building. Furthermore, the relationship between this surface (T34 Locus 4) and the possible wall directly to the north in T35 needs to be examined.

Opening Depths, Locus 4:

  • 145 E, 48.5 S: 27.63
  • 145 E, 49.5 S: 27.62
  • 146 E, 48.5 S: 27.55
  • 146 E, 49.5 S: 27.56
  • 147 E, 48.5 S: 27.54
  • 147 E, 49.5 S: 27.55
  • 148 E, 48.5 S: 27.55
  • 148 E, 49.5 S: 27.55

The following rough scematic indicated the location of major rocks visible in the upper surface of Locus 4. Dotted lines indicate the location of major concentrations of terracotta and pottery.

Special Finds, Locus 4:


  • Find #1
  • 146.42 E, 48.65 S
  • 27.55 absolute elevation
  • Complete base with large po rtion of profile

Find Totals, Locus 4:

  • 7 latte boxes terracotta
  • 170 sherds pottery
  • 9 pieces bone

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.
