The cataloguer first recorded basic measurements of the sherd, and then a detailed description of the artifact (Shape, Munsell color, Inclusions, etc.). We based our descriptions on standard descriptions employed by the American School of Classical Studies Excavations at Corinth (Corinth Excavation Handbook). We recorded this information on a paper form and later keyed it intoa Microsoft Access database. We scanned these forms and archived the paper copy at the University of North Dakota.

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.
