Feature numbers were assigned in the field by DAACS have a F-prefix, which precedes the number (i.e. F01 equals Feature 1, F02 represents Feature 2, etc.). Excavated contexts that belong to the same depositional basin (e.g. the layers in a single pit) have been assigned a single feature number.
Features at Papine Village
Two archaeological features at the Papine Village were identified and given feature numbers. These features were found in 1-x-1 meter units. Feature 1 is a likely cobble paving found in Unit 1 near the cistern. Feature 2 is an unidentifiable pit or trench feature in Unit 4, northwest of the sugar mill. In the case of both features, additional unit excavation in adjacent units is required to fully define the features.
Whenever a possible feature was encountered during the excavation of a 50-centimeter diameter shovel test pit, work in the pit was halted and the presence of a likely feature was noted in the STP field form. These features were not given numbers as they were not slated for excavation but the field notes and drawings for these STPs usually include a drawing of the possible feature and notes regarding its characteristics.
