Work continued in Locus 4. The stratum remained consistent with what had been excavated since the Locus was opened. Charcoal and plaster riddled the soil, and roots and vegetal matter are still abundant.


Work continued in Locus 4. The distribution of finds and change in soil consistency made it apparent that we had uncovered the archaic floor level. We finished clearing it, swept it, and cleaned the baulks in preparation for photographs tomorrow. Some finds were left in situ as evidence for the floor level.

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.
