|Description||Locus 7 is the area of the trench which contains a tile and ceramic deposition of some sort. Combined with Loci 8 and 9, it seems to be an element of an architectural feature which may be a hearth. It is located in roughly the northernmost meter of the trench. The tile fragments and ceramic sherds within Locus 7 tend to be smaller than those recovered from the tile spreads of Loci 4 and 6 and are not as concentrated. It has been suggested that this configuration of tiles may actually function as some sort of drainage system for a floor surface, and so Locus 7 would then be such a drainage system. The soil in which they lie is similar to the soil of Loci 5 and 6, for it is dark olive brown, clay-like, and mottled. Very little of Locus 7 was excavated; rather, the tiles and ceramics were defined and left in sit. Based on the material that was removed from Locus 7, it seems that Locus 7 contains a high concentration of iron and other feric materials. One iron fragment was recovered, as well as five pieces, two of which are very large, of what appear to be iron slag.|
