Description Locus 11 is located in the northern extension of the trench and is comprised of the medium olive brown, slightly mottled, claylike soil like the soil of Locus 2, with which Locus 11 is equivalent. In the western part of the trench though, a heavily burnt, loose purple soil was found. It was decided not to declare this burnt purple soil a new locus though, for Locus 11 contained a mixture of ancient and modern materials. However a fair amount of material was recovered from this locus; 13 bowls of tile, 290 pottery sherds, and 12 pieces of bone were removed from Locus 11. Additionally, Locus 11 contained one iron fragment. Locus 11 also contained a tile deposition, like that of Locus 4, although in the extension the tile deposition was included in Locus 11.

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.
