Description Locus 1 encompassed the entire trench. The soil in Locus 1 is a very dark brown, filled with roots, small rocks, and contains much organic material. It is a humus layer. There are two large stumps in the trench, one in the south-east and another in the north-west. There are medium sized rocks scattered throughout the trench. Very little tile (less than half a bowl of tile) and no pottery or bone was recovered. It was worn and pitted. Locus 1 sits immediately above Loci 2, 3, and 4. There was one catalogued find from Locus 1, a cavetto fragment from a frieze plaque: 20140004.

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.
