Interpretation

    • Organic silty clay layer seen within test pit 4 in the eastern part of trench 4. Observed under layer (4088). Probably a build up due to flooding events, however it felt very much like a fill of a feature, but due to the nature of digging test pits we only got a small glimpse at the material and couldn’t see if it was in a feature or was a layer.
