Wankarani Settlement Dataset
The data file RIMTHK.TXT contains thickness measurements for rim sherds recovered from sites where systematic excavations were conducted. Each line represents one sherd. There are 1,009 lines, each with 5 variables separated by commas. The variables are, in the following order:
|2||Northing (within-site coordinate system)|
|3||Easting (within-site coordinate system)|
|4||Excavation unit size in square meters|
|5||Thickness of the rim of the sherd in millimeters|
The first line of the file, for example, looks like this:
This indicates that in site RK-1, at 160N and 100E in the internal site coordinate system, a unit of 10 square meters was excavated. This rim sherd from that unit was 9.1 mm thick.
The last (1009th) line of the file is:
This indicates that in site B-7, at 100N and 100E in the internal site coordinate system, a unit of 10 square meters was excavated. This rim sherd from that unit was 8.6 mm thick.
