Continued troweling through Locus 9 around the bedrock feature. Soil not appearing to change as previously thought. Small rocks still being removed, 4-8cm in size. Very little material found—one tiny piece of terra cotta and two pieces of bone. Some pieces of bedrock have lipped edges which we are removing soil from underneath. In other places no end to the bedrock able to be seen. The outcropping in the center is not budging, nor is the piece of rock directly south of it being troweled around. Yellow and brown mottled soil appearing beneath the medium brown Locus 9 soil. Area cleaned, opening photographs and elevations taken:

NW Corner: 28.51m A.E.

NE Corner: 28.62m A.E.

SE Corner: 28.59m A.E.

SW Corner: 28.60m A.E.

Locus 11 is a mottled olive green, yellow, and medium brown color, and in some places totally olive. It surrounds the bedrock feature and is claylike in texture. One fragment of bedrock removed, and it overlies the Locus 11 soil. Under the small fractured piece and the few centimeters of soil below it, more bedrock sheeting being found.



Soil turning primarily olive, losing the brown and yellow mottling. Is, however, in some places mottled with chalky grey and white which appears to be deteriorating rock. No material found thus far. Bedrock pieces still solidly in place and defining around them with trowels.


Continued to define around the bedrock. Soil remains consistent with Locus 11 , olive brown with mottling. It was discovered that Locus 11 is carbon included by what appear to be small seeds, 2mm in size. In order to take soil samples tomorrow morning work suspended for the day. The area tarped overnight.


Locus 9 :

Terra cotta: 1

Bone: 2

Locus 11 : none

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.
