Area Name Main Street
Description and Bibliography

Of the three streets identified within the gallery complex, Main Street is the only one that has been excavated along its full length.24 The archaeologists uncovered a small drain running along the center. One point to note is that botanical samples from this area were sieved prior to flotation, probably causing a loss of material.25

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.
