Munsell Color 2.5Y 7/3 pale yellow
Description Chalky, Flakey white and light yellow soil with some spots of darker yellow. This is the layer located directly above bedrock and is probably a natural galestra. Various size pieces of broken off limestone, bedrock and slingstone looking rocks were found in the soil. Very little to no inclusions in the soil, the only material recovered was some fragmentary pieces of pottery as well as a possible piece of slag. Lack of elevations for the 2nd rotation point (224E,87S) is due to a large stump.

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.
