Description Locus 9 is below and adjacent to Locus 8 in the 1x5 meter extension. This locus was created around a tile packing originally discovered in Locus 8. After the tile packing was removed and stones discovered underneath, the locus was extended to the entire 1x5 meter extension. The soil is dark-brown and clay-like. The tile packing starts 0.6 m from the western baulk wall to the end of the original locus, approximately 2.5 m from the western baulk wall. This tile packing was to the south of a tile packing found in the Vescovado Trench 7: Locus 7 Materials were found in the entire trench except the southwest corner. In the southwest corner of the locus the soil is yellow and granular modeled with chalky, white soil inclusions. It was apparent that the southwest corner was decaying stone and similar to Locus 3.

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.
