Location Context Title Context Description Description (Modern)
Seal Impression Strata | SIS This is a vertical distinction rather than a horizontal one. Located within the Area PG (the Royal Cemetery) these strata were noted sloping down and forming the material into which the graves were dug (mostly seen in the western portion of the cemetery area). They contained many early tablets and seal impressions, thus the name SIS (Seal Impression Strata). They appear to be evidence of many dumping episodes of administrative material probably thrown out from an important building such as an early shrine. There were eight separate strata noted, but not all could be traced over an extended area and there are conflations of several, such as SIS 4-5, where the exact stratum for an artifact could not be determined.
