Descriptive Variable Value(s)
Trench T90
Description Locus 1 consisted of a relatively loose, mottled soil. It was confined only to the northeast quarter of the trench and overlaid the northern wall of the small, single-room rectilinear building that was built over the floor of EPOC4 (Locus 2). Given the small size of the locus, relatively high quantities of tile, ceramics, and bone were found, including three fragments of vitrified terracotta. Based on work conducted in T81 in 2015, this deposit likely consisted of backfill from excavations in the late 1960s. Therefore, this deposit was removed before excavating the northern wall of the rectilinear building and sectioning through the floor surfaces of the rectilinear building and EPOC4, to avoid contamination.

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.
