The original excavators of the House 24 site did not assign numbers to individual features. DAACS staff has 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 post hole and post mold 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.
Some features associated with House 24 were not excavated and therefore do not have associated contexts: F01 (house foundation), F04 (interior wall) and F05 (interior wall) are such features. These features had no direct stratigraphic relationships with excavated contexts and therefore do not appear on the House 24 Harris Matrix.
DAACS staff created the context "D277" associated with F02 (raised plaster platform), because though it was not excavated, stratigraphic relationships with excavated contexts were able to be determined in this case.
Feature Groups are comprised of features whose architectural or landscape or spatial/Feature groups are sets of features whose spatial arrangements indicate they were part of a single structure (e.g. structural postholes, subfloor pits, 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).
