    • This small ovoid shaped rubbish pit was first observed in the 2021 evaluation Trench 11 (but remained unexcavated that season) when it was considered to possibly represent a cremation burial due to the presence of burnt bone. Upon excavation during the 2022 season, it was found to contain a range of finds synonymous with a small dump of Roman rubbish such as a partially complete small bowl (SF164), numerous other sherds of different pottery fabrics and burnt bone (probably animal).
