The excavation of locus 3 was completed this morning. Approximately four bowls of terracotta fragments were recovered. Approximately 1/4 latte box of pottery sherds was found along with three pieces of bone and one jaw fragment with teeth. Locus 4 was now declared across the entire trench. The soil of locus 4 is mostly grayish in color with numerous orange and white inclusions and pieces of carbon. The soil has numerous stones fist size and larger. Photos were taken and co-ordinates measured.

Opening co-ordinates of locus 3:

47.6-S/177.4-E = 129 cm. below datum point, 27.01 m. above absolute elevation

47.6-S/180.1-E = 132 cm. below datum point, 26.98 m. above absolute elevation

49.2-S/180.1-E = 122 cm. below datum point, 27.08 m. above absolute elevation

49.2-S/177.1-E = 105 cm. below datum point, 27.25 m. above absolute elevation

Excavation of locus 4 was started.


Excavation in locus 4 was continued this afternoon. Today, the excavation of locus 3 was equal to approximately one pick pass of 5 cm. and the excavation of locus 4 was approximately the same.

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.
