Description Locus 4 lies directly below Locus 2, abuts Locus 3. Locus 4 lies partially above Locus 5. The soil is similar to Locus 2, brown, dense, and clay-like, with the presence of shell fragments. Locus 4 is defined by a scatter of tiles across most of the locus. Patches of yellow and grey soil were present near the southeastern baulk wall. The soil in Locus 4 slopes southeast, suggesting the presence of a slope. 7 bowls of tile and over 100 pottery sherds were recovered from Locus 4, along with bone fragments, including a wild boar tooth. No modern materials were recovered from the locus and the ceramics present vary from coarseware, impasto, fineware, and black-slip, including diagnostic fragments. Most of the excavation of Locus 4 concentrated in a 2 x 3m sounding from the eastern baulk wall.

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.
