Interpretation This dark-brown layer is characterized by a high percentage of clay and a general paucity of artifacts, with the excepion of tile which is common. Su 1388 probably represents a natural post-abandonment deposit over road SU 1400. It appears to have been removed from the area south of the surviving road b earlier Italian excavations.

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.
