Description Locus 7 is a 1x3 meter sounding located in the southeast corner of the trench. The sounding was made in order to determine whether a feature of small stones first uncovered in T 60 continued to the north into T 59. The surface of Locus 7 was marked by large stones that were part of a linear rock feature that was a part of Locus 5. These rocks were lifted and lying beneath them was bedrock that is also included in the locus. Soil between rocks is light olive-brown and claylike. At the bottom of the locus, a yellow, flakey soil began to appear in the northwest corner of the sounding; this closely resembles galestra. No small rocks were found at the bottom of the locus, indicating that the rock feature in T 60 did not continue to the north into T 59. Very little archaeological material was uncovered in Locus 7 and none of the artifacts recovered are chronologically diagnostic.

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.
