A simplified version of the stratigraphy of Shubayqa 1, an Epipalaeolithic site in eastern Jordan, after Richter et al. (2017) .

shub1

Format

A data frame with 30 rows, representing contexts, and 7 variables:

context

integer; a unique identifier of the context.

type

character; type of context, i.e. deposit, fill, cut, or structural.

above

integer vector; context(s) stratigraphically above this one.

below

integer vector; context(s) stratigraphically below this one.

equal

integer vector; context(s) stratigraphically equal to this one.

phase

character; Phase assigned to the context, for contexts that aren't structural.

structure

character; for structural contexts, the name of the structure they belong to.

Details

The stratigraphy is a simplified version derived from the schematic section in Richter et al. (2017) , figure 2. Context numbers were arbitrarily assigned and the stratigraphic relations are based on those evident in the diagram. Phase and structure names are also based on the diagram.
