Description Locus 2 consists of a claylike soil that is brown with some brownish yellow mottling. The soil is still full of roots and organic debris from the stump system in the trench. There is a large amount of pottery and terracotta in this locus. There are still a number of small stones apprearing thoughout the locus. Due to the relatively large amount of medieval pottery recovered (including 20110014) in this locus it is clear that this strata is not contextually ancient. A possible forno fragment was also recovered from this layer (20110013).

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.
