Work began today with defining the rocks in the southeast of Locus 7 along with defining the area around the stump in the southwest of the locus. Defining was carried out using trowels and brushes. Soil was hand-sorted over buckets and dumped into the wheelbarrow. Soil is a light medium brown in Locus 7 and includes plaster and pottery laying flat on an area whose density, texture, and materials indicate a functional floor surface. Once well-defined, the floor of the entire trench was lightly swept in preparation for closing. Closing photos for loci 6, 7 , and 8 , along with closing elevations were taken and the loci were closed.

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.
