Short Description:
Rubble fill in slot in SE corner of trench 4
Issued to
Jodie Hannis | 26/08/2022


    • Second/bottom layer of fill in N-S ditch in eastern side of trench. Likely a demolition event of a nearby wall which then filled the ditch. (4241) was initially interpreted as a possible robbed out wall or rubble line but when seen in section, it was confirmed to be part of this rubble fill. Finds from this layer of fill were much less than the upper fill (4242)
