This morning opening elevations and pictures were taken for Locus 6.

NW = 28.19m AE

SW = 28.17m AE

NE = 28.22m AE

SE = 28.26m AE

A pick pass was performed across the western half, to even out the overall surface. This picking revealed the same darker and clumpier soil as in the eastern half. Performed a second pick pass in the western half of Locus 6. Finished the second pick pass in the eastern half of the trench, uncovering a consistently darker soil. Therefore a new locus, Locus 7, was declared in the southern sector of the trench (same area as original trench).

NW (136 E / 34 S) = 28.18m AE

SW (136 E / 36 S) = 28.14m AE

SE (139 E / 36 S) = 28.11m AE

NE (139 E / 34 S) = 28.23m AE


The opening elevations for Locus 7 were taken (above). The remainder of the day was spent further defining baulk walls in preparation for taking opening photos tomorrow morning.

Material Totals (Locus 6):

1 bowl of terracotta

68 sherds of pottery

14 pieces of bone

(Baulk Wall)

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.
