Levi Jordan Plantation

Data from the "Shell and Bone Carver's Cabin"

Artifact types found in Unit # 5 South, 55 West

By Level and by 1'x1' subunit
(How to read this table: for example, Subunit 3, Level 4 contained 6 DIFFERENT TYPES of artifacts).

Levels were excavated to a depth of 1/10 of a foot. The unit was 5'x5', and subunits within that were 1'x1'. The 5'x5' unit was subdivided into 1'x1' subunits at level 3. See Method for more information about the excavation methods used at this site.

Levels 1, 2, 9 and 10 were excavated in 5' x 5' units, and were not subdivided into 1' x 1' subunits. Subunit #8 was excavated as a soil sample; that is, artifacts were not separated from the surrounding soil. Analysis is still under way for this material; therefore, individual artifacts from subunit 8 are not included in this listing.
