Observations layer of rubble, including mortar, limestone, and a human skull. below the skull a fragment of a lime sarcophagus lid was found (delta 292)
Position south eastern corner at 2011 excavation limit (at limit of geotextile)
Shape oval
Layer Surface downwards slope at southern limit; skull, tile fragments (sparse)
Layer Inclusion Observations walking/paving marble slab (possibly from / similar to 1325)
Layer Thickness Observations decreases toward south
Record Revised Date 2016-04-26
Interpretation Disturbed grave due to disarticulated body --> found cranium, vertebrae fragments, and one phalange. Skull is most likely incomplete. Fill in SU seems to be collapsed debris.

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.
