Stratigraphic Summary

Stratigraphic Summary

Essentially two soil types were encountered in this years excavation of CA-36.

Initially the soil in and around the stone formation was uniformly medium brown with occasional flecks of carbon.  As excavation progressed, a significant change was noticed.  In meters N5, E1 and N6, E1, soil shifted from this medium brown to a yellowish brown soil with several small stones.  This same yellowish brown soil surrounded bedrock which was revealed in these meters.  The transition was very noticable on the horizontal plane of the trench ( see p. 195, JB book IV ) on both the eastern and norther edges of the trench floor in N5, W1 and N5, W2.

A similiar transition was visible in section (see JB IV p. 209 and p. 213 )

Eventually, at a depth ranging between 65 to 70 cm below surface level, soil throughout all six meters (N5-6, E1 and N5-6, W1-2) shifted from medium brown soil to the yellowish brown soil.

The point of transition between the medium brown soil and yellowish brown soil was also the area of most dense carbon.

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.
