A larger percentage of the pottery was coil made. Three pieces of bronze and one piece of iron were recovered. There were several pieces of slag found. One piece of worked stone was recovered. The soil pack was deposited directly upon the bedrock, was tightly packed, and was about 35cm deep.

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.
