Locus 1 is the topsoil layer of this exploratory 1x1. The operation is set on the inner (western) edge of the large eastern terrace just below the citadel. The soil matrix is a typical medium brown silty sand with very few large rocks to obstruct excavation. Ceramic density in this locus is very high (a full large bag in just a 1x1). Other materials are moderate to light.
