Short Description:
Fill of [14004]
Issued to
Raksha Dave | 27/07/2015


    • Fill of possible post-hole [14004]. Function is unknown as this has been truncated by recent 'wall chasing' in the 1930s, and the feature extending beyond the limit of excavation to the south and the east. Section LA_33 suggests that this context is the primary fill of this cut as the mortar and chalk lense in (14003) corresponds to the alignment of this cut. Direct relationships however to this feature have subsequently been destroyed by bioturbation.
