Short Description:
A Layer of 10cm wide well rounded pebbles placed around the edge of context 25011
Issued to
Ed Caswell | 27/09/2016
1877

Interpretation

    • A pit of some kind filled with well graded stone slightly smaller than a fist which while placed closely together did not appear to be held together as with 25011. This could have been a pit or the edge which was then filled to extend the surface of 25011
