The purpose of further work in the area of Rectangle 22, Agger 11, and the Agger 11 Extension (for previous work see J. Hare 1979, Book 1 pp 124-208 ) is fourfold: 1. To expose more of the walls within the mound and determine how it continues the double construction revealed in 1979, for example wheather any means of entering and leaving the coridor from within the circuit exists; 2. To dig a trench perpendicular to the Agger and with a level floor for the preparation of a profile drawing; 3. To uncover and persue any further stretches of this fortification to the south or east; 4. To characterize the area immediatley within this perhaps terminal portion of the wall, opening a new trench to be designated Tesoro Trench 25.

In areas previously explored we shall follow the two systems of coordinates employed by J. Hare (see sketch ). Thus, in rectangle 22 we number the meter intervals 1 through 7 from north to south and letter them A through F from west to east. Also, a pair of axes governs both Agger 11 (AG11) and Agger 11 Extension (AG-X). The roughly east-west axis is numbered counting down to 0 then z in the east; the north-south axis is lettered from the face of the north wall of the room in Rectangle 22, toward the south in AG 11 A through I, and toward the north in AG-X with double letters AA, BB, CC and so on. The meter occupied by the wall in the north of Rectangle 22 is not included in this north-sough axis.

On the completion of work in areas opened last season, we shall lay out the new trench Tesoro 25 (T25) according to the system which numbers the grid from west to east, begining at the southwest corner of the upper building with "I" and follows the line of its south wall and letters the grid from north to south begining at the southern face of its south wall with "A" extending the line of the building's west wall.

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.
