Archaeological documentation of the looter´s pit feature Befund 4/02 on the Mittelberg hill near Nebra 2002. a) Planum in a photo (left) and drawing (right). b) East-West section (left) and North-South section (right) in photo and drawing. The pit-like feature consists of three layers (4a – c). The core (4a) consisted of fresh leaves, wood, and humus remains. The surrounding pit filling (4b) contained less recent organic components. In contrast to the adjacent material of the humification horizon, the area around the pit (4c) had a brown colour. Below the pit, high copper and gold concentrations could be measured in the undisturbed, banded clay erosion layer (4d). The stone packing east of the pit could be identified as a natural geological phenomenon. © LDA, photos: T. Koiki, mapping: T. Blankenburg.
