Description Locus 8 was located in the northernmost section of the trench, directly to the north of Locus 7 and to the northwest of the Locus 6 stone wall; the locus extended southward to where the assumed boundary of the Locus 6 stone wall would have been. There was a concentration of large tile fragments and ceramic sherds located in the center of the locus that were left in situ. Additionally, there were two large stones in the southern portion of the locus that likely were a continuation of the stone wall of Locus 6; the rest of the wall was disturbed and these two stones were the only preserved parts of the wall in Locus 8. Locus 8 was left unexcavated in order to expose and preserve the concentration of tile and pottery in the central meters and the two large stones in the southern meters of the locus. A soil sample was taken and soil was a dark yellowish-brown, with white inclusions. As it is likely that this locus was disturbed, as evidenced by the lack of a stone wall, this was not a contextually secure locus.

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.
