The excavation of locus 3 was completed.  Five bowls (24 cm. in diameter, 7 cm. in depth) of terracotta fragments were recovered.  Eleven pottery sherds were found (9-impasto body, 2-impasto rim).  A fragment of bronze was found, along with some fragments of colbalt blue glass which were made a special find (#1).  Four fragments of bone were recovered.

The area directly under the tile layer was designated locus 4 .  The soil is brownish-yellow and slightly grainy.

Opening depths:

  • NW corner = 176.8-E/49.3-S = 27.42 m. above absolute elevation
  • SW corner = 176.4-E/52.0-S = 27.45 m. above absolute elevation
  • SE corner = 180.0-E/52.2-S = 27.51 m. above absolute elevation
  • NE corner = 180.0-E/49.3-S = 27.52 m. above absolute elevation

Additional Depth Measurements for Locus 4:

  • 177-E/52-S = 27.45 m. above absolute elevation (estimated)
  • 177-E/52.1-S = 27.45 m. above absolute elevation (estimated)

Photos were taken of the opening of locus 4

The glass fragments that were found were located at the transition point between locus 3 and locus 4.

The finishing of the excavation of locus 3 only marginally loweree the level of the trench.

The excavation of locus 4 was begun.  The trench was lowered approximately 5 cm.  Three bowls (24 cm. in diameter, 7 cm. in depth) of terracotta fragments were recovered.  Approximately a 1/4 lattle box of bone was found along with approximately a 1/4 latte box of pottery sherds.  There were three special finds (#2 and #3:  odd pieces of terracotta, #4:  bronze fragments forming a small shee).

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.
