    • Probable small, shallow storage pit. The lack of finds suggests storage rather than rubbish. The feature could date to the Iron Age or early Romano-British period due to proximity and similarity in form/character to other pits in the area that could date to this period, although no dateable material was recovered. The feature is discrete but forms part of a group of 3 pits, including F1101 and F1103, of almost identical size and shape which may be broadly contemporary.
