Excavation continued in locus 6 .  The entire trench was lowered approximately 5 cm.  There is a moderate quantity of stones scattered throughout the trench ranging from fist size to approximately 30 X 20 X 10 cm.  The soil is more highly mottled in the western sector than in the eastern sector.  Approximately 2 bowls (24 cm. in diameter, 7 cm. in depth) of terracotta fragments mixed with plaster were recovered.  Approximately 3 latte boxes of pottery sherds and 1/2 latte box of bone fragments were found.  One small piece of bulk bronze was found.  The plaster fragment described in yesterday's entry is in all likelihood a piece of a terracotta brick and is now made a special find (#2) for today.  Five other special finds were made (#1:  Sherd with slip decoration; #3:  Sherd with slip; #4:  Sherd with bands of slip; #5:  Spindle whorl fragment; #6:  Wing-cup handle fragment).

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.
