Digging ceased in locus 8 on July 22 with the following ending co-ordinates:

176.6-E/49.5-S = 26.88 m. above absolute elevation

176.2-E/52.0-S = 26.87 m. above absolute elevation

177.3-E/52.0-S = 26.89 m. above absolute elevation

177.3-E/52.4-S = 26.91 m. above absolute elevation

178.4-E/52.4-S = 26.92 m. above absolute elevation

178.4-E/52.4-S = 26.80 m. above absolute elevation

180.3-E/52.4-S = 26.75 m. above absolute elevation

180.3-E/50.1-S = 26.80 m. above absolute elevation

180.3-E/49.5-S = 27.21 m. above absolute elevation (high measurement due to large stone in trench here)

178.4-E/49.5-S = 26.79 m. above absolute elevation

178.4-E/49.5-S = 26.86 m. above absolute elevation

The trench directly east of T-30-G was designated as the Eastern Extension.  The area to be excavated was declared locus 9 and has the following opening co-ordinates:

180.3-E/49.6-S = 27.21 m. above absolute elevation (high measurement due to large stone in trench here)

180.3-E/50.1-S = 26.83 m. above absolute elevation (estimated)

180.3-E/52.4-S = 26.83 m. above absolute elevation

181.6-E/52.4-S = 26.81 m. above absolute elevation

181.6-E/49.6-S = 26.83 m. above absolute elevation

The soil of this locus is mostly sterile with some pottery sherds, bone fragments, terracotta fragments and plaster turning up at the corners and sides.  Locus 9 has these closing co-ordinates:

180.3-E/49.6-S = 27.21 m. above absolute elevation (high measurement due to large stone in trench here)

180.3-E/50.1-S = 26.79 m. above absolute elevation

180.3-E/52.4-S = 26.79 m. above absolute elevation

181.6-E/52.4-S = 26.77 m. above absolute elevation

181.6-E/49.6-S = 26.79 m. above absolute elevation

Photos wre taken of locus 9 at the opening.  Approximately 1/3 bowl (24 cm. in diameter, 7 cm. in depth) of terracotta fragments mixed with plaster

was recovered.  Approximately 1/6 latte box of pottery sherds and approximately 1/6 latte box of bone fragments were found.

The balk walls of the trench were trimmed today.  Approximately 2/3 bowl (24 cm. in diameter, 7 cm. in depth) of terracotta fragments mixed with plaster was recovered.  Approximately 1/3 latte box of pottery sherds and bone fragments was found.  One special find was made (#1:  Bone fragment with cut marks).

Balk trim was also done in the Western Extension of the trench (area around 173-E/49-S).  Approximately 1/3 bowl (24 cm. in diameter, 7 cm. in depth) of terracotta fragments was recovered.  Nine sherds of pottery were found along with six pieces of bone.

Some general brush and stone clearing

was done in the T-22 trench (immediately to the west of T-30).

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.
