Area Name Big Backhoe Trench South
Description and Bibliography

As the name suggests, this "area" is defined by a major modern intervention (a large backhoe gouge) into the archaeological area. As is often the case in these circumstances, although highly destructive, this machine-made cut revealed some of the deeper stratigraphy of the site, which AREA has investigated.12

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.
