Description The soil of locus 2 was identical to the claylike soil of locus 1 in both color and texture. It was declared in order to separate the finds from the top layer on the trench from those recovered slightly deeper in the soil. The locus only partially covered the area of locus 1 in order to expediate the speed of excavation. The locus was filled with roots and organic material. It gradually changed color and texture to a very claylike blue/almost black soil (which was eventually declared locus 4). Locus 2 produced the majority of the finds of the trench this year.(including 127 of the 250 sherds of pottery and 3 of the 4 cataloged finds) but the material was a mixture of modern and ancient.

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.
