Description Locus 4 is the soil underneath the Archaic tile spread. It is darker in color and is mottled with orange, white, and black inclsuions. The mottling is heavier in the NE and SW than it is in the center of the trench. Locus 4 contains many Archaic artifacts, including frieze plaque and sima fragments. Bedrock also appeared in the NE corner and many small to medium rocks were pulled up in pick passes in the northern meter.

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.
