Description Locus 4 was originally declared as a large locus which extended through most of the trench. As declared, it is N and E of Locus 5, E of Locus 3, and sits under Locus 1 in the N half of the trench, and under Locus 3 in the S half of the trench. It sits on top of Locus 6 in the N half of the trench, and on top of Locus 10 in the S. Only the N half of Locus 4 was excavated as Locus 4. Before the S half could be excavated, work in the S half of the trench stopped. When it was resumed, the entire S half was declared Locus 10 for ease of documentation. As excavated in the N half of the trench, Locus 4 was a darker, clayey soil. It was also rather moist. Finds included a bronze fibula fragment and a fragment of a rocchetto. There was also terracotta, ceramic, and limited quantities of bone. Locus 4 was also where the first larger fragments of terracotta roofing tile were recovered.

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.
