Descriptive Attribute Value(s)
Designator Wall
Context rating Primary
General remarks This is all that remains of a possible wall associated with the foundation trench of locus 1071. The wall was removed in the 2001 season inadvertantly and would have run parallel to the wall of locus 1069. On 7/15/2002 a cobble was found in this locus that is the other half of a broken stone bowl that was used as a cobble for L1069. KT1069.12 and KT 1073.7 are two halves of the same broken stone bowl. The bowl halves were inverted and used as wall cobbles for two different walls.

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.
