Description Locus 4 is defined by a humus topsoil later or O-horizon. As it is an extension to the South East it seams to abut up against an older undefined trench and what seems to be its associated dirt pile/potential tile and pottery dump. On the surface of Locus 4 there was found a few large pieces of tile and a few smaller that fist sized rocks. 2 catalogued finds were discovered: 1 terracotta with slag scarring (PC2014005), and 1 piece of vitrified terracotta (PC20140057). No metals or bone were found. 3 pieces of slag were found, weighing 58 grams. 104 pieces of pottery were uncovered, 44% of which were impasto and 29% were coarseware. This locus has a severe increase in both pottery and terracotta because of what was previously identified as a dirt and terracotta dump. Locus 4 is equivalent with Locus 1.

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.
