    • Interpretation of this feature has changed after excavation by sondage at southern end of trench. This is a cut for a drainage ditch which is one of the latest phased events in this trench. The ditch has been filled in three stages (26008) primary fill , (26003) silting and finally (26004) for the creation of a causeway. A bank was also initially created with the creation of the ditch from the upcast (26013).
