A.M./P.M.          6 July 2012

Locus 1 was closed.  Locus 2 was established across the whole trench.  The soil of this locus is dark-yellowish brown with fewer stones than locus 1.  Co-ordinate depths were made and photos taken of the opening of the new locus.

Opening co-ordinates of locus 2:

NW (42-E/53-S):  55 cm. below datum point = 25.90 m. above absolute elevation.

NE (46-E/53-S):  68 cm. below datum point = 25.77 m. above absolute elevation.

SE (46-E/57-S):  84 cm. below datum point = 25.61 m. above absolute elevation.

SW (42-E/57-S):  69 cm. below datum point = 25.76 m. above absolute elevation.

Special Finds:

1.  Locus 2

Approximately 44.8-E/54.5-S

Approximately 25.73 m. above absolute elevation

Iron fragment (horse shoe?)



2.  Locus 2


25.73 m. above absolute elevation

Part of bronze band

A pick-pass was completed across the entire trench.  The trench was lowered approximately 5 cm.  Approximately 2 1/2 bowls of terracotta, all well-worn, were recovered.  Twelve sherds of pottery were found.  One piece, which may be iron slag, was made a bulk find.  The sides of the trench were trimmed.  An iron fragment and a part of a bronze band were made special finds (S.F.# 1 and #2).

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.
