Elizabeth Hemings Site
The original excavators of the Elizabeth Hemings site did not assign numbers to individual features. DAACS staff 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.
It should be noted that F01 (Posthole), excavated during 1995, is shown as a distinct posthole and postmold on site maps and in context records but was excavated as one context (1865E). In addition, F02 (Hearth Area) and F04 (Cobble Scatter) do not have excavated contexts associated with them.
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).
