Work started a little late, hoping that the soil would dry out after last night's heavy rain. The southernmost meter of locus 2 is filled with rocks so it was decided to extend the locus to the west in order to see if the rocks extend that way.

  • 100,5s/47w: 1,37 m b.d. 30,17 m AE
  • 100,5s/49w 1,34 m b.d. 30,20 m AE
  • 102s/49w: 1,32 m b.d. 30,22 m AE

The soil of the locus 2 extension is identical to the soil of locus 1 and locus 2 , very dark brown with a lot of roots. Pickpasses were made in the extension to bring it down to the same level as the original locus 2 .



AM special finds:

1. Locus 2


1.56 m b.d. 29.98 m AE

possible fragments of cooking stand

2. Locus 2


1.61 m b.d. 2993 m AE

roccheto fragment 20100077


3. Locus 2


1.50 m b.d. 30.04 m AE

worked stone 20100037


Digging resumed across the entire locus 2 . The soil in the northernmost 3 meter seems to be more claylike than the rest of the locus. There are now rocks acros the entirety of the southernmost meter of the locus. They don\'t form a floor surface, but there are terracotta directly on top of two of them (in addition to several pieces that came oput while the area was being defined). Also, a well preserved handle was found directly on top of the stones.

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.
