|Description||Locus 12 was located in the eastern extension of the trench, directly underlying the rock packing of Locus 11. The soil of Locus 12 was dark grayish-blue in color, was extremely claylike and moist, with an oily appearance and occassionally a slightly fetid smell. Some tree roots and small rocks were scattered throughout the locus and occassionally there were patches of a lighter colored olive-brown soil scattered throughout the locus. Very little material was recovered from Locus 12, including small amounts of terracotta roofing tile and pottery as well as two fragments of bone. All of the material recovered from this locus is ancient, suggesting that this is a contextually sound deposit. Soil samples were taken in order to further study this deposit, as the slightly fetid smell, strange color, and oily appearance of the soil suggest that Locus 12 may have been some sort of organic deposit. Locus 12 is equivalent to Loci 4 and 10.|
