Description Locus 6 consists of the entire rock spread found in the northeastern corner of the trench and the soil and material recovered within them. The stones are between 7 and 50 cm in length. The soil associated with the stones is very claylike and is dark grayish brown in color and and there is much less organic material than there was in locus 4 which preceded it. In among the stones are patches of a more blue soil that has a strong fetid smell. Material from this locus includes approx. 3 bowls of pottery and 2 boxes of pottery. Also, datable material was recovered from this locus including a frieze plaque fragment (20110054) which seems to clearly indicate that this locus was deposited during the archaic phase of the site's occupation.

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.
