Observations As excavation proceeded it was determined that the southern portion of SU 1384 should be designated a separate SU number and this is SU 1388 soil over the road (different compaction and composition, far fewer finds, less hard and more clay). Special find bronze fibula pin.
Position Southwest edge of trench B, Northern limit of SU 1384, was 2010 excavation limit
Shape rectangular
Layer Surface very slight downward slope to south
Layer Inclusion Observations rubble running from south to north ending in central area and going off to the west
Layer Thickness Observations increase in thickness of central area towards south as underlying bedrock drops, also thickness decreases on eastern side as tufo floor prep. rises to floor level
Layer Interface Sharp
Soil Sample False
Non-Soil Sample True
Sieving False
Non-Soil Sample Size N.A.
Non-Soil Sample Type Charcoal
Finds Observations underside of foot has concentric black circles

Interpretation Reddish soil 1384 is equivalent to 1199 and fills cut 1229 of tufo floor in courtyard exposing drainage channel; accumulation layer/fill of various debris (pottery, tiles, bone, charcoal, etc). As excavation proceeded a large slab of tufo appeared on the western side of SU (covering drainage channel?) with tufo floor on top of southern side, additionally a bit further another large slab appeared and in line with this the soil changed to a less hard, more clayey soil with few finds and it was designated a separate SU, SU 1388 (which covers the step, threshhold and road).

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.
