Interpretation

    • Tile floor of building. Appears to be the same phase of the building as clay floor (19011). The rest of the floor was not found in the trench and may have been removed in the past or ploughed out. This matches the plan of the 1985 excavation where only small areas of tile and brick remained in situ.
