Livingston Data, AZ V:5:121 (ASM): Strata

Summary

The strata represent major natural or cultural depositional events such as erosional fill, roof fall, floor contexts, and sterile substrate. Strata are depicted as horizontal rows of interconnected boxes on a Harris Matrix. Within a feature, each stratum is designated by the feature number (e.g., 10, 11, 12, etc.) and a letter that designates a particular stratum (e.g., A, B, C). The letters are assigned in descending order. Mixed levels and artifacts collected out of context are designated by a "?". Artifacts from each feature (or mixed context) are tallied according to strata. Please see column metadata for further detail.

Associated Substructures Identifies the subfeatures associated with each feature -- often each feature stratum. A subfeature is designated by the associated feature number and an assigned subfeature decimal number (e.g., 10.01, 10.02, 10.03). Subfeature numbers begin with .01 for each associated feature and increase sequentially. Also identifies the subfeature type. Each subfeature is labeled with the assigned subfeature type, to the right of the subfeature number. Examples: 10.04 Timber = a timber subfeature associated with Feature 10 10.05 In-Place Vessel = an in-situ vessel associated with Feature 10 10.06 Roof Fall = well-defined roof fall in association with Feature 10 Note that subfeatures are frequently associated with a particular stratum within a feature. For example, subfeatures 10.04, 10.05, and 10.06 may be associated with Stratum 10C. Other subfeatures may be associated with Stratum 10D, etc.
VARCHAR  Uncoded Value Provenience and Context : Feature Type none none
Screened Volume (cu. M) Measurement of the volume (in cubic meters) of fill that was screened from a designated stratum. The measure is 0.00 if no fill was screened from a stratum (i.e., The context or feature fill was not screened.).
DOUBLE  Uncoded Value Provenience and Context : Context none none
Total Volume (cu. M) Measurement of the volume (in cubic meters) of total fill in a designated stratum.
DOUBLE  Uncoded Value Provenience and Context : Context none none

Stratum Identifies a major natural or cultural depositional event such as erosional fill, roof fall, floor contexts, and sterile substrate (i.e., a single archaeological context in both horizontal and vertical space). Strata are depicted as horizontal rows of interconnected boxes on a Harris Matrix. A stratum is a combination of an individual feature and a context in or associated with that feature. For example, Feature 10 might be a structure with an erosonial fill stratum, a roof fall stratum, a floor stratum, and a sterile substrate stratum. Within each feature, each stratum is designated by the feature number (e.g., 10, 11, 12, etc.) and a letter that designates a particular stratum (e.g., A, B, C). The levels excavated in a feature were aggregated into individual feature strata (e.g., Levels 1 - 3 = Stratum A). A feature's stratum letters are assigned in descending order. A context letter of "?" designates a mixed level or context or artifacts collected out of context. Examples: 0? = General Cultural Fill/No Feature and Indeterminate context 10A = Feature 10 and Context A 10B = Feature 10 and Context B 10C = Feature 10 and Context C 22? = Feature 22 and Mixed and/or Undefined context 22A - Feature 22 and Context A Each stratum (e.g., 10C) is assigned to a stratum type. Examples: 10A = Feature 10 and Context A = Feature 10, erosional fill 10B = Feature 10 and Context B = Feature 10, roof fall 10C = Feature 10 and Context C = Feature 10, floor Some strata are associated with one or more subfeatures. Please see the Associated Subfeatures columns.
VARCHAR  Uncoded Value Provenience and Context : Stratum none none
Type Identifies the feature type for each feature. In addition, identifies the stratum type for each stratum in and/or associated with a feature. Examples: Feature 10 = Cobble Masonry Room (feature type) Stratum 10? = unassigned contexts in Cobble Masonry Room, Feature 10 Stratum 10B = roof fall in Cobble Masonry Room, Feature 10
VARCHAR  Uncoded Value Provenience and Context : Feature Type none none
Feature Identifies the assigned feature number for each identified feature.Feature numbers begin with 1 at each site and increase sequentially (e.g., 10, 11, 12).
BIGINT  Uncoded Value Provenience and Context : Feature ID/Number none none
