Description Locus 5 was limited to a rock feature located along the eastern baulk wall of the trench. The soil of Locus 5 was mostly dark olive-brown colored with occassional patches of a dark-gray colored soil; as more of the rocks were removed and as the locus was excavated, the soil became predominantly dark grayish-blue in color. The soil throughout the locus was extremely claylike and moist and often had a slightly fetid odor. The soil contained some roots and many medium to large sized rocks. Very little archaeological material, including terracotta roofing tiles or pottery, was found in Locus 5 and no bone or metal was found. Only ancient material was recovered from Locus 5, indicating that this was a contextualized ancient deposit. Locus 5 is equivalent to Locus 6, a rock feature located in the southeastern corner of the trench, and to Locus 11, the rock feature excavated in the eastern extension of 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.
