Description Within this locus is a linear formation of stones running diagonally across the locus from the southwest corner to the northeast. It is approximately 1.2m wide and incorporates a large piece of bedrock (half of which crosses into T-69 to the south) into its southern portion so as to form a corner. This formation is thought to be the western returnwall of the structure appearing across the 2015 field of excavation. Few materials were recovered from this locus, though pottery, bone and terracotta were all present. No datable materials were recovered. The soil is light brown in color and slightly claylike in texture. It is very loose and not compacted, allowing for ease of excavation. There are still some roots present, however the loamy organic matter of locus 1 is no longer present.

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.
