Seville House 16
The original excavators of the House 16 site did not assign numbers to individual features. DAACS staff has assigned feature numbers using the original excavation records. Feature Numbers assigned by DAACS have a F-prefix, which precedes the number (i.e. F01 equals Feature 1).
Excavated contexts that belong to the same depositional basin (e.g. a posthole and postmold or the layers in a single pit) have been assigned a single feature number. In addition, single contexts have been given feature numbers when the original field records indicate that the excavators recognized a context’s spatial distinctiveness from surrounding contexts.
Please note that at Seville House 16 a number of quadrats and contexts are also labeled with a F-prefix (F9-F17). The majority of the features at Seville House 16 were not excavated. Features 16 (burial), 17 (marl floor) and 20 (cobble floor) were excavated, although they did not contain any contexts with a F-prefix. Please see the table below for more details.
Features at Seville House 16
The majority of the features identified at House 16 are postholes and postmolds. None of the identified House 16 posthole/mold features were excavated. As a result, there are no context records or artifacts associated with these postholes/postmolds. The features are also not represented on the site-wide Harris Matrix but the final site map and conversations with Douglas Armstrong indicate that the postholes were found at subsoil. We know the location and size of the House 16 postholes/molds since they were represented on the final site map.
Feature groups are sets of features whose spatial arrangements indicate they were part of a single structure (e.g. structural postholes, subfloor pits, and hearth) or landscape element (e.g. postholes that comprise a fenceline). Feature Groups assigned by DAACS have a FG-prefix, which precedes the number (i.e. FG01 equals Feature Group 1).
