General remarks Opening locus of this trench. No plow marks as are visible in other areas. The top soil layer was removed. Little pottery was observed as we removed the top .50 meters. There are few stones and very few pieces of broken ceramic pieces. We did not collect any materials on this locus and there are no KT #"s.

Has note Contexts excavated in trenches were recorded using the "locus system." A locus is any discrete three-dimensional entity excavated in a trench. The key to the locus system is the recognition that a locus is any one thing. Differences in soil composition or texture are therefore as important as, for example, the difference between a pit and a wall. If two entities were distinct, they were considered separate loci and were therefore assigned separate locus numbers. It should also be noted that every context excavated in a trench was given a locus number and thus the trench itself is made up completely of excavated loci.
