Things you need to know about the Quarter Site before you use the data:
- All sediment excavated from the entire site was at least screened through 1/4 inch hardware cloth. Waterscreen and flotation samples were also taken from select contexts.
- Measurements are in feet and tenths of feet.
- Natural stratigraphy was followed for the removal of sediments at the site. However, where feature fill layers appeared to be relatively deep, a system of arbitrary levels was enforced. New levels were begun at 0.2 ft. intervals, and labeled with consecutive letters. The arbitrary nature of these divisions was recorded in the field notes.
- Once topsoil was removed, each 10 foot square unit was further subdivided into 5 foot square quadrants to increase spatial control over recovered artifacts. Quadrants were given a number designation, with quadrant 1 in the northwest, quadrant 2 in the northeast, quadrant 3 in the southwest, and quadrant 4 in the southwest.
