Excavation Details for Excavation Units

In order by excavation unit number.

Excavation Unit



Segment 1 N E.
(Segment 1 is 10.5 meters long, 70 centimeters wide.)
Segment 1 is located in the central portion of the site.
This excavation unit is southeast of Arbitrary 105, and west-northwest of Nonstructure 106.

Selection Criteria

Judgmental. Segment 1 was used to investigate the nature of an electrical resistivity anomaly.

Excavation Strategy

Other. Overburden was removed using a backhoe, until rock was encountered and it became clear we were in a structure. At this point, natural strata were subdivided into 25 centimeter arbitrary levels.

Unit Ends at

Structure floor. Excavation terminated at approximately 81.70 meters below datum. The floor in this excavation unit likely eroded away, revealing the underlying, natural, undisturbed, calcium carbonate deposit.
