    • Formed through the robbing of a wall. The wall, aligned E-W and on north edge of trench, which is no longer present was excavated leaving the cut 4078, this was later backfilled with presumable broken rubble stones from the removal of the wall 4078. Runs almost at a right angle to F436, parallel to F430 and F440 - potentially part of the same structure or comtemporary. Also butts up against 4084: a rubble spread area with potential contemporary material.
