Description Locus 2 is a medium brown and yellow mottled soil. Several rocks twenty to thirty-five centimeters in size are located in the western half of the trench. Around those rocks are some pockets of white, chalky, deteriorating rock included in the soil matrix. One large bedrock outcropping approximately seventy centimeters in length and width is near the northeastern corner. Many large and small roots are still present, and the soil is more yellow around them. A couple fragments of medieval pottery were found. Small amounts of terra cotta were recovered, but no bone was found. A fair amount of pottery was found, mostly impasto. Several pieces of worked chert were found in this level. The soil pack was denser than the topsoil, but somewhat loose and not claylike. The soil pack was between twelve and sixteen 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.
