Trench Layout

CA-69 was laid out on the master grid system established for the site (see TT-I, 1991, pg 173). A base line was shot with the transit which was situated at (53 W, 0 N). On this baseline, the two points (53 W, 32 N) and (53 W, 26 N) were established. Via triangulation the point (45 W, 26 N) was established. From that CA-67 was laid out and then the two Eastern coordinates of CA 69 were laid out from CA-67's Western line, and the Northern coordinates were established via triangulation.

The coordinates of the four corners of CA 69 upon commencing excavation were as follows:

NW corner: 32N/ 49W

NE corner: 32N/ 47W

SE corner: 27N/ 47W

SW corner: 27N/ 49W

A datum point with an absolute elevation of 28.63m was established on a tree located immediately to the east of trench.

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.
