Stone sampling mindmap - 19th Nov 2020
Need to sample across periods and across structures
Focus on early and middle periods for now
Podium stone facing (?)
Are there blocks of moulding from this phase?
Reservoir stone lining (probably inaccessible)
Spring coping blocks
Great Bath first set of walls? :check:
Joggled arch viewing spring? :check:
Significant areas of exposed stonework immediately to north of Great Bath by drain and at base of niches; what phase is this? :question:
First phase of Great Bath paving
Great Bath first set of piers :check:
Feedback to integrate
Why 30 samples?
Develop section on test analyses of stone
Clarify sampling procedure with reference to Cliveden recommendations
Perhaps redo site diagram using proper colour pallettes
Add in short introductory paragraph clarifying existing sampling strategy
Samples will be placed in sample cups, not made into pressurised pellets
Add reference list
Mark's specific feedback too
This mindmap for ideas and thoughts
Reread papers to double-check phasing notes, particularly with respect to features I am thinking of sampling

Collect images in these reports to inform on potential stones to sample
Select features/stones to sample and include them as part of the report
Integrate feedback, comments and new research and seleted samples into report and submit to supervisors
Ambulatory foundations? Precinct wall?
Blocks forming original reservoir enclosure wall (apparently exposed in temple precinct)
Set of stairs up to reservoir door? Are these Bath stone and are they definitely phase 2 or were they replaced in phase 3?
Was entrance facade part of the phase 3 buttressing efforts, or could those stones be sampled in survey? :check:
Great Bath pillar bases from reroofing :check:
Ambulatory wall (doesn't seem accessible, although precinct east wall could be sampled)
When was temple precinct gate/arch added? Are these foundations accessible?
Buttresses on north wall :check:
Buttress on west wall (accessible?) :check:
