II. Methodology

The trench will be excavated manually using big picks, hand picks, trowels and brushes. Terracotta and plaster will be counted by bowls (the bowl used has a diameter of 24 centimeters and a maximum depth of 7 centimeters. If larger amounts of pottery are found they will be counted by 1-liter latte boxes.

The coordinates of special finds will be measured from the closest trench edge using tape measure and plumb bob and the elevation will be measured from a datum point using string, line level, plumb bob and tape measure.

The term "medieval" will be used to describe any glazed pottery that is not clearly ancient nor clearly very recent.

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.
