Finds Observations Black gloss: includes some pieces that join. Creamware: two rims with partial or whole handles attached. Bone: includes 16 human bones. Metal: includes nails, bosses. Glass: multi-colored design on one piece. Other: two game tokens. Lots of cooking ware present, which could indicate domestic assemblage (or refuse).

Interpretation SU is defined through ploughmarks on its top. It is a big layer of grayish, mixed material, not dissimilar to SU 1032 from 2010 season. It overlies a large, irregular rubble fall, and contains significant inclusions of friable red tufo just above this rubble layers, SU in places lies directly above a floor layer.

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.
