Description Locus 3 lies directly below Locus 2, and above most of Loci 8, 9, and 10. The soil in Locus 3 is predominantly a light-medium brown, which gradually became lighter (to a yellow colour) in the western portion of the trench. The defining feature of Locus 3 was the revealing and definition of a linear rock feature roughly in the centre of the locus running north-south. The feature was roughly 50cms wide and appears to have been a continuation of a feature present in CA72 uncovered during the 2012 season. There were 330 sherds of pottery recovered, over half of which was impasto. 11 pieces of bone were also excavated. 3.5 bowls of tile were recovered also. Furthermore, numerous pieces of slag and some vitrified terracotta was also recovered.

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.
