Description Locus 7, like Locus 5, consists of redeposited galestra. Locus 7 was opened throughout the entire trench, including the eastern extension, after the removal of the T-23 backfill (Locus 6). Like Loci 3 and 5, Locus 7 was characterized by a gray, flaky, galestra-like soil which should be associated with the post-archaic-building destruction of the site. Locus 7 was a shallow locus, averaging a depth of only approximately 6cm. Thus, the total depth of the stratum composed of redeposited galestra (Loci 3, 4, 5, and 7) was approximately 60cm thick in T-48. Despite the shallowness of this locus, Locus 7 yielded a fair amount of material; 4.5 bowls of tile and plaster, 133 sherds of pottery, 27pieces of bone, and 2 bronze fragments were found in Locus 7.

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.
