Weaving Implements

The "feature" in CA42N produced 12 weaving implements while no such objects were found in the other areas of the trench.  4 spindle whorls and 8 rocchetti were found.  Rocchetti were mostly fragmentary coarse and flat-ended (#1 p. 45 , #4 p. 57 , #4 p. 83 , #11 p. 117 , #1 p. 135 , #2 p. 141 , #3 p. 167 ).  One miniature rocchetto was found (#1 p. 113 ).  None had decoration.  Spindle whorls were of truncated conical shape, undecorated (#7 p. 97 , #8 p. 133 , #2 p. 113 ) except for one fragmentary miniature whorl that was flated (#2 p. 113 ).

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.
