T-75 contained a considerable amount of bone, with a total of 486 fragments unearthed. Locus 1 only produced 28 fairly small fragments; however, since it was topsoil and old dirt dump, the amount and quality of preservation are not surprising or noteworthy. Locus 3 also produced a tiny amount of bone, with only two fragments. But, like Locus 1 , Locus 3 was topsoil and an old dirt dump. Locus 2 and Locus 4 produced somewhat small amounts of bone, with 79 and 47 fragments respectively. Locus 2 also contained one catalogued artifact, an incised, perforated bone inlay ( 20150024 20150024 ). The majority of T-75's bone material came from Locus 5 and the baulk trim. However, not much can be gleaned from the baulk trim's 113 fragments as it is decontextualized. Locus 5 produced the most bone, with 224 fragments. A bone with what appear to be butcher marks was recovered from the locus, which could suggest that food production took place in the vicinity. Additionally, a fragment of a cinghiale jaw was found, which could also provide information about activity in the area. However, neither of these finds were catalogued. It should be noted that much of the material was concentrated within the western half of the locus, which could suggest that food production took place within the area of T-75, or in the immediate vicinity as all of the recovered material appears to be animal bone.

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.
