Observations The rubble wall labeled 1135 is approximately 644cm in length. This measurement includes an approximately 95cm cut by the burial (1150) which intersects the wall approximately 380cm east of its western-most point, adjacent to 1058. Current excavated depth is 44cm and the wall appears to be 83cm wide. Average size of rubble is 18 x 8cm. (measurements taken from widest point)
Position southern half of the site. Originating from the west and continuing east
Shape linear, fairly straight. Its width tends to vary due to current excavation limit and possible collapsed debris.
Structure Alignment west-east
Structure Building Technique Other tufo stones, size 10cm (small) to 18cm (medium)
Structure Dimensions W: 83cm, L: 644cm, H: 44cm
Structure Description The wall originates from the west and continues east for approx. 644 cm, at which point current excavation limits obscure eastern end of wall. At the widest point the wall's width is 83cm. Approx. 380cm from the wall's western origina is a burial cut labeled 1150. This burial cut exposes approx. 44cm of the wall's height. (see sketch)

Interpretation 1135 is a tufo wall abutting SU 1058. It seems to predate the burial 1150 which was cut into the wall. The wall's relation to the adjacent burial 1125 is undetermined. 1135 may be a perpendicular extension of another wall feature located south of SU 1058 and oriented N-S.

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.
