Artifacts of the Seven Site: The Southeast Ferrous Feature

Southeast  Ferrous Feature: General Description

The Southeast Ferrous Feature at the Seven Site is a more or less linear concentration of highly oxidized ferrous fragments and rust just southeast of the 2010 “L” lanes and northwest of the 2010 “X” area (Figure 1). 
The feature trends roughly S-SW down the slope of the ridge, covering a linear distance of about seven meters.  We documented it photographically, with video, and with a sketch-plan on June 4, 2010, and took samples of larger and relatively identifiable fragments from six locations, shown in Figure 2.  Figure 3 shows the feature as viewed from the photo tower at an elevation of about 3 meters.
