Observations An olla (SU 10167) was removed from this SU on 09.07.2010 for the purposes of potential residue analysis; there was no apparent cut around 1067; therefore, this olla seems to have been an inclusion within 1158. Special finds (see sketch for location): delta130 chunk of bronze, delta140 small bronze fragment, delta146 bone die (broken), delta150 small bronze coin
Position near center, at southern edge
Shape roughly rectangular, except for preserved area of floor at north, and extending over wall at west
Layer Surface uneven surface with large visible section of floor; fragmetns of preparation layer visible at western end
Layer Inclusion Observations 2 fragmentary ollae with bases oriented down found west of grave 18. Frequent metal inclusions, including several iron nails, several irregular chunks of bronze and lead, a lead strip (bent), a bronze fibula fragment, a small bronze coin. Some frags of cociopesto floor surface found between western end of prserved floor and N-S 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.
