Description Locus 1 was declared across the whole of the trench. Locus 1 is a humus layer with a lot of organic material present. One small stump and two large stumps are present within the trench along with their roots, all but the largest stump found in the northwestern corner were removed from the trench. The soil is a grayish-brown color with some white root rot. Most of the material recovered in this locus was heavily worn, pitted, and small. Only two special finds, a medieval nail and iron fragment, along with pottery and terra cotta found. This locus was a modern decontextualized layer.

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.
