Short Description:
Fill of cut 28010
Issued to
Alan Hitchcock | 22/09/2016
1793

Interpretation

    • A small shallow cut appeared during cleaning of context 28008. This was shallow with tow irregular sumps and was first thought as being natural due to a sandy lense near its base. however it instead appears to be a period of excavating an exisiting slow accretion deposit that was soon filled after.
