Metal and Slag Analysis:

Twenty four fragments of metal were recovered from T 62 during the 2014 excavation season, three of which were modern. The most fragments were found in Locus 11 , though many were small flakes collected in bulk. Of the total fragments, one was cataloged, 20140061

20140061 . Thirty three fragments of slag, weighing 162 grams, were recovered from T 62 in the 2014 excavation season. The greatest number, seventeen, came from Locus 8 and weighed 89 grams. One fragment of slag adhered to terra cotta, 20140024 20140024 , was cataloged. In addition to slag, the presence of vitrified terra cotta may further indicate intense burning in the area of T 62 and especially in Civitate A twenty meters to its west, as associated with small scale metal production.

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.
