Locus Summary


Locus 1- topsoil layer consisting of about 2 cm of very dark gray (10YR 3/1) organic humus layer and underlying light olive brown (2.5Y 5/3) soil in meters N10-14 W11-13.

Locus 2- light olive brown (2.5Y 5/3) in meters N10-11 W11 under locus 1.

Locus 3- light yellowish brown (2.5Y 6/4) to sterile soil with large bedrock outcroppings most of the floor in N10-11 W11. =locus 2.

Locus 4- top soil layer consisting of very dark gray (10YR 3/1) organic layer and underlying light olive brown (2.5Y 5/3) soil in N12-15 W10. =locus 1.

Locus 5- olive brown soil (2.5Y 4/3) containing carbon inclusinos and abundant archeological material in N12-15 W10, mostly present to the east of large bedrock outcropping.

Locus 6- sterile soil and bedrock under Locus 5 in N12-15 W10.

Locus 7- topsoil in meters N12-15 W8-9. =locus 4

Locus 8- formation of 8 large (20-30cm) stones placed in a lozenge pattern and oriented south to north in N12-14 W9.

Locus 9- topsoil in N13-15 W7, N11-12 W8, N11 W9. =locus 7

Locus 10 olive brown (2.5Y 4/3) soil around the stone formation (locus 8) under locus 7 and 8 in N12-15 W8-9.

Locus 11- a lensing of olive brown (2.5Y 4/3) soil of roughly oval shape around and under stone formation containing carbon limited by bedrock on the west and large stump on the south. =locus 5

Locus 12- sterile soil around locus 11 in N12-15 W8-9. =locus 6

Locus 13- a roughly rectangular area of light olive brown (2.5Y 6/3) to the north of locus 11. =locus 11

Locus 14- mottled soil under locus 11 containing calcite inclusions and carbon. =locus 16

Locus 15- dark organically rich soil under and within large stump in N12 W8-9.

Locus 16- pale yellow soil containing archeological material under locus 14 and above bedrock.

Locus 17- sterile soil and flat bedrock under the lensing of dark soil. =locus 12

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.
