Description Locus 3 consists of the area throughout the 50 cm extension to the north. It is a humus layer, with lots of densely packed roots and small rocks measuring approximately 2 cm to 5 cm. The soil is very dark brown, excepting the patch of root rot in the northwest corner. Lots of rocks were found and some material was recovered, mostly heavily worn terracotta. Rocks were more concentrated in the northeast corner of the trench, which is consistent with both Locus 1 and Locus 2.

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.
