Short Description:
Clayey silt layer in Western half of trench 8

Interpretation

    • This material forms the predominant deposit of the bank built up against the wall 8005 on the western side. It forms one large dumping event probably to landscape this area of the garden after it went out of use. This maybe also allowed a viewing platform to be formed at the back of the garden. Numerous large pieces of carved masonry were recovered from this material, possibly as a stabilising agent for the bank
