Description Locus 4 was an extension to the south of CA79's initial boundaries. It was extended in order to explore the extent of the linear rock feature running north-south in CA79, as well as to explore a stone packing that had become apparent in CA76 which is immediately to the west in CA79. Locus 4 is the topsoil of the extension. It extends throughout the area. It consists of a very dark brown soil, with a large amount of humus and organic material. Some larger roots are present from the stump present in the north-east and south-east corners and the smaller stumps in southern meter of the trench. Some small (ca. 5cm) and medium (ca. 10-15cm) stones were included throughout the trench. Locus 4 rests on a lighter brown soil. Less than 10 sherds of pottery and about 1/3 bowl of tile were in Locus 4, along with one piece of bone. Some slag pieces were also present.

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.
