Column Name Data Type Type Category Coding Sheet Ontology
Feature Number Numeric designation assigned sequentially to each feature within the Locus
BIGINT  Uncoded Value Provenience and Context : Feature ID/Number none none
Vessel Number Sequential number assigned to each inferred glass object within a context based on unique glass object bases
BIGINT  Uncoded Value Glass : Other none none
Catalog Number Laboratory-assigned number for each unique provenience from which artifacts were recovered and cataloged
BIGINT  Uncoded Value Provenience and Context : Context none none
Field Number Tracking number assigned during excavation by field staff for each unique provenience from which artifacts were recovered
BIGINT  Uncoded Value Provenience and Context : Context none none
Specimen Number sequentially-assigned number for each artifact or batch of similar artifacts within a context that are described by a single line of the catalog
BIGINT  Uncoded Value Provenience and Context : Other none none
Count number of individual artifacts within each specimen number, which can be greater than 1 due to the batching of similar artifacts within a context that can be described jointly by a single line of the catalog
BIGINT  Count Glass : Count none none
Rim diameter (in.) approximate interior diameter of the opening of the whole glass vessel object represented by the artifacts. estimated by comparing curve of rim against chart of measured arcs at 1/2-inch intervals
BIGINT  Uncoded Value Glass : Measurement none none
Base diameter (in.) approximate diameter of the base of the whole glass vessel object represented by the artifacts. estimated by comparing curve of base against chart of measured arcs at 1/2-inch intervals
BIGINT  Uncoded Value Glass : Measurement none none
Crossmends with catalog and specimen number of glass artifacts from other contexts that re-fit together and constitute portions of the same vessel
VARCHAR  Uncoded Value Provenience and Context : Context none none
Comments miscellaneous notes from artifact catalog on glass artifact details
VARCHAR  Uncoded Value Glass : Other none none
Color describes color of the glass artifact
VARCHAR  Uncoded Value Glass : Other none none
Form describes the whole glass vessel object from which the artifacts originate such as bottle, tumbler, flask, etc.
VARCHAR  Uncoded Value Glass : Form none none
Portion describes the part of the larger glass vessel form from which the artifact(s) originate such as base, neck, finish, etc.
VARCHAR  Uncoded Value Glass : Other none none
% Complete assessment of the proportion of the whole glass vessel object that the artifacts represent, expressed as a percentage
VARCHAR  Uncoded Value Glass : Other none none
