Trimmed baulk in meters Y-Z/13-14.  This produced 2 latte boxes of pottery and bone fragments, as well as a few small fragments of bronze, and 1/6 cassetta of tile and plaster fargments.  Finds from this area included painted pottery (#1), cut antler (#5), 1/2 spindle whorl (#7), and an incised bucchero rim (#6).

Worked to define the stones in the south portion of Z/13-14.  The soil in this area was dark w/ many inclusions of carbon.  In the southwest corner of the trench, on the north side of the rocks, there was a layer of burnt, decomposed plaster above the darker soil.  This area produced 2 latte boxes of pottery and bone, and 30-40 small fragments of plaster with a few tile fragments.

In meters Y-Z/17-18 it has been too wet to work, because the yellow sandy soil does not absorb water well.  Today the top layer of mud (~1-2 cm.) was scraped off, and these meters were scraped down to about 170 cm. b.d.  The soil was mostly of the yellow sandy type.  However, patches of reddish plaster soil appeared in a rough line running N-S in meter 18 about 20-30 cm. west of the baulk.  Flecks of carbon also appeared in the yellow soil of the south portion of the Z meters.

A.M. Continued.

The soil in the north-east corner was more of a light brown.  These soil changes are mostly likely due to a depression in the ground like which is apparent in the stratigraphy of the north baulk.  Four fragments of tile and plaster, and 6-8 fragments of pottery and bone were recovered.  Finds included a spindle whorl (# ), piece of cut bone (# ), and a worked stone (# ).

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.
