Descriptive Properties (4)
Finds Bags, or KT bags, are groups of artifacts of the same material composition excavated from a locus. Each finds bag may contain a number of finds but finds are always separated by material. Thus, ceramics, bones and lithics excavated from the same locus were given separate numbers and were collected in separate bags. A special category is the "small find," which could be of any material. Small finds are generally speaking rare or exceptional finds such as figurines, loom weights, andirons or worked bone tools. Small finds are given separate numbers and are bagged separately. Finds bags could consist of only one plastic bag of material and could only be excavated on a single day.
