Short Description:
Primary fill of ditch
Issued to
Ben Swain | 29/07/2015

Interpretation

    • This was the lowest/earliest fill in the sequence that was excavated out of the inner monastic precinct ditch. However, due to the depth of the feature exceeding health and safety limits, it could not be excavated any further. Therefore, there may have been earlier ditch fills that cannot be established at this time.
