Description Locus 14 was declared across the whole of the 1x3 extension to the south of the original trench. Locus 14 is a humus layer with a lot of organic material present. There are a large number of roots from the trees along the baulks. The soil is a grayish-brown color speckled with white root rot and pockets of a yellow clay-like soil. Most of the material recovered in this locus was heavily worn, pitted, and small. Only tile was recovered. This locus was a modern decontextualized layer. This locus is equivilant to locus 13, 1, and 6.

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.
