Interpretation Soil fill of two ceramic vessels containing infant burial. Vessels were collapsed from above, so soil of fill may represent contamination from above. Some inclusions (1 dolium shread, several medium sized stones) may have been the cause of this collapse. All fill was taken to be sieved and floated by enviromental

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.
