Description Locus 4 is located immediately east of T-70 (2015), immediately north of T-58 (2014, FGT-III) and immediately south of T-57 (2014, AJC-VII). It is a 60cm wide strip, 2 meters long and has a large tree in its northeastern corner. This tree then has a large root which traces the locus' northern border, reaching the northwestern corner. The soil is topsoil and thus contains much organic matter and smaller roots as well as small pieces of limestone. It is dark brown in color and is very compacted. Only three pieces of pottery, no bone and 11 small pieces of terracotta were recovered from this locus. None of these materials provided any clear chronological data.

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.
