Description Locus 6 is a darker brown soil that covered ¾ of the trench. Under locus 6 was a white flakey soil that appears to slope from the north to the southern part of the trench. It has tile and pottery included in it along with patches of decayed rocks in it. Locus 6 was the only locus to produce bone finds in the trench. Several elements of freize plaque were recovered in this locus, given it an earliest date of the Archaic period (see 20120118, 20120115, 20120133). This locus was also produced a large amount of tile and pottery for the trench.

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.
