Seville House 15
The original excavators of the House 15 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 posthole and postmold 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.
Please note that at Seville House 15 a number of quadrats and contexts are also labeled with a F-prefix (F11, F12, F14, F15, F16, F18, F22, F23). Since none of the features at Seville House 15 were excavated, all artifacts associated with "F" contexts belong to non-feature contexts. Please see below for more details.
Features at Seville House 15
All of the features identified at House 15 are postholes and postmolds. None of the identified House 15 features were excavated. As a result, there are no context records or artifacts associated with the postholes/postmolds. The features are also not represented on the site-wide Harris Matrix but the site map and conversations with Douglas Armstrong indicate that the postholes were found at subsoil. We know the location and size of the House 15 features since they were represented on the final site map.
Feature groups are sets of features whose spatial arrangements indicate they were part of a single structure (e.g. structural postholes, subfloor pits, and 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).
