Prepared to take soil sample of Locus 11 and its carbon inclusions. Cleared an area of all potentially contaminating soil and troweled out a sample into a sample bag for testing. Sample collected at 28.37m A.E. Continued troweling through Locus 11 , an olive claylike soil with carbon inclusions that appear to be small seeds. Photographs of the feature taken by the site director. Two stones in the feature appear to be shorn off from the bed rock above and may possibly be removed due to dirt surrounding. Troweling to define and possibly remove them in addition to troweling out the main feature. One piece removed, troweling in the soil beneath it to remove the other two. In continued defining recovered one tiny piece of terra cotta, but otherwise no other material yet recovered from Locus 11 . Have troweled through at least 30cm thus far with the carbon inclusions. Bedrock pieces seem to be sloping inwards towards each other, but no sign of the bottom of the feature yet. Another small fleck of terra cotta found.


Continued working through Locus 11 soil around the bedrock. In the eastern part the soil is at times chalky yellow and white, but still has the



carbon inclusions. Some rocks are appearing in places, but unsure if they are more bedrock fragments or removable stones. Bedrock may also be sloping together. Bedrock outcropping piece was removed using the pick axe. It overlies the Locus 11 soil with carbon inclusions. Three more rocks beside and below the bedrock removed. Also surrounded and overlying Locus 11 soil with carbon inclusions. Still troweling to define the edges of the bedrock feature, and where possible using the hand pick or pick axe to remove soil. Locus 11 continues to be carbon included. Surface cleaned and swept for the evening.


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.
