Daily Log

July 9, 1998 AM

The morning started by continuing the topsoil cut in locus 9, meters N11 W8-9.  Bedrock in N14-15 W7 was defined.  The soil of locus 9 in 2.5Y 4/2 (dark grayish brown).  The current depth of locus 9 is equal to the depth of locus 7 and is approximately 80-90 cm b.d.

Material recovered from locus 9 today included 60 tile pieces, badly worn and small, 1 plaster piece, 3 coarseware, 8 impasto, and 8 redware fragments, also worn.  A piece of worked chest was found as well.



July 9, 1998 PM

North, east and south baulks were trimmed in loci 7 and 9.  loci 7 and 9 designate approximately 10 cm top soil cut in meters N11-15 W8-9 and N12-15 W7 and are equivalent to each other.  Since the current level of loci 7 and 9 is at the same depth as the stone formation )locus 8), the soil is then at this depth, 80-90 cm b.b., was designated locus 10.

Approximately 10 cm cut was started in meters N15 W8-9, N13-14 W8, around the stone formation.  material retrieved from this excavated part of locus 10 was less worn than in the previous cut and fairly abundant.  A large fragment of pan tile flange was found in N14-70-14-95, W8.1, which was better preserved than most of the rest tile fragments found.  Also 2 large fragments of coarse redware vessel base were found within 50cm distance from eachother i meters N14 W8.  The rest of the material included 11 bone pieces, which came mostly from N13-14 W8, 1 grayware handle, 8 coarseware, 4 bucchero, 9 redware and 34 impasto fragments.  Final depth of locus 10 for today was approximately 100cm b.d.

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.
