Description Locus 4 was the 1 x2 meter sounding done in the northeastern corner of CA 73. It contained the same soil as loci 2 and 3, a loose, fine dark grayish brown. It contained a significant amount of material including terracotta, vitrified terracotta, pottery, bone, and slag. It was excavated until the loose, fine soil had been completely removed, revealed a dense, mottled soil beneath. Significant finds within locus 4 include a worked bone inlay (20120182), worked Pietra Fetida (20120184), carbonized wood, and a fragment of iron and bronze combined (20120227).

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.
