    • This sandy mortar likely hints that the adjacent wall (23002) is an external wall, and coming NW, where this mortar lies, would bring you within the structure. the mortar itself is very yellow/orangey and had a lot of sand within it, typical of early medieval date, so could possibly relate to an abbey structure and again, a possible infirmary site
