General remarks This was designated as a new locus as it appears to be an oven sitting on the surface Locus 10. Its characteristics give the idea that it is an oven. Red and brown dirt is observed mixed with shades of black and gray. Unfortunately there is no visible burned parts. There are pieces of burnt pottery or better yet pars of the oven wall. There is also quite a bit of small calcaneous pebbles white and soft. These pebbles look almost like lime or chalk. There is also some potery in association with the oven one a fragment of a pitcher like container which appears to be chalcolithic has a small spout still in one piece

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.
