Notes:
8
You may provide as many context fields as needed (beyond “Area”, “Locus”). The important thing to do is to split them into separate fields (rather than lump them all into one).
9
We have included fusion data fields, even though measurements provided will be only for fused elements.
10
Date ranges are in calendar years BCE/CE. Negative values indicate BCE
11
We are presuming that each row will provide information on only one specimen. Nevertheless, for clarity and to make quantification easier, we are including a "count" column.
12
Fusion - if you have a descriptive system to note fusion state beyond fused or unfused, e.g. suture line visible, partly visible, etc. please feel free to contribute those observations as well, along with any definitions you have of your terminology.
