Comments
Stratum-2 = Housefloor sediments. These were likely transported to the site from nearby silt/clay deposits. In more rare cases they may have also been acquired from within the bounds of the site. Floor sediments have high levels of clay and silt sized clasts in them. Floor sediments also have evidence for in-situ artifact discard and presence of features. Sub-designations such as '2c' refer to different sequences (such as an earlier or later sub-strat) within the main strata designation. Feature 1, roasting pit/hearth was dug into an already existing cache-pit. Hearth/Roasting was feature probably dated.
