Description Locus 3 is a yellow, brown, white, orange, and reddish chalky deteriorating rock soil pack. Some roots were still present in the soil matrix of Locus 3. One large stone slab, approximately fifty centimeters by seventy centimeters was removed from Locus 3. Artifacts were recovered from within the deteriorating rock soil pack, indicating that it was previously disturbed by human interaction, including terra cotta, pottery, and a piece of worked chert. The locus was closed when a depth of ten centimeters was achieved from the last found artifact. The soil pack was extremely loose, and between twenty-five and forty centimeters deep.

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.
