Definition soil in corridor between SU 1183 and SU 1186
Formation Process Accumulation
Layer Date Observations dating of SU could extend to +200. But lack of later material suggests an earlier date

Clay 80.0
Silt 20.0
Soil Matrix Granular
Soil Compation Loose
Soil Color Gray
Observations The soil fills the corridor that sits between the western wall of room 1 (SU 1183) and the eastern wall of room 2 (SU 1186). Also cut at southern end by cappuccina tomb.
Position south central
Shape narrow rectilinear shape, longer in length than width
Layer Surface slightly southward
Layer Inclusion Observations soil is composed of small rubble and granualr silt - inclusions are densest at center and southern end
Layer Thickness Observations failry even, but decreases in central area of the SU which corresponds to intrusion cut SU
Layer Interface Other
Layer Interface (Other Notes) difficult to determine without reminv the soil
Finds Observations bucchero: fragments of handle projecting from rim; bone: 1 small bag; plaster: 1 box

Interpretation The soil SU 1182 appears to cover a narrow corridor that is located between the eastern wall of room 2 (SU 1186) and western wall of room 1 (SU 1183). The chronological relationship of the room walls is not yet clear.

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.
