It was more concentrated and in a thicker band at the east end of the trench near the large stump. The west end had a thinner band, more shallow layer of this soil. Material yield for locus three was: 1 very full cassetta of terracotta, 15 sherds of bulk pottery, No bone, No metal except for the one special find, a small piece of flat bronze, use unknown.

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.
