Within this locus there was an increase in charcoal, much like in locus 2. No slag or bone were found. 16 pieces of pottery were found, with 56% being impasto and 44% being coarseware. An average amount of terracotta fragments were uncovered. Locus 5 is equivalent with Locus 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.
