Trench T90
Description Locus 3 consisted of the western wall of the small, single-room, rectilinear building that was built over the front porch of EPOC4 and the soil holding the stone foundations in place. Stones were all limestone and medium and large in size, measuring from between 20-50cm in maximum dimensions. The soil holding the stones in place was olive-brown in color and claylike in texture. The locus ran roughly SSW to NNE across the trench, in its westernmost two meters. Given the small size of this locus, high quantities of ceramics and bone were found in this locus, but we recovered very little tile.

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.
