Feature 30


by H. Trawick Ward

Feature 30 was an almost circular feature that measured 2.9 ft by 2.8 ft in plan view and was 2.2 ft deep. It was located just east of Structure 10 at 271.3R21.5. At subsoil, the pit appeared as a circular patch of dark brown loam (designated Zone 1) with potsherds, rocks, and animal bone. This fill zone also contained pockets of ash and yellow sandy clay, and it was approximately 1.5 ft deep. Zone 1 rested upon Zone 2, which was similar except that it had a more reddish hue. Zone 2 also contained less cultural material than Zone 1 and was approximately 0.7 ft thick. The pit sides were straight and the bottom was flat.
