Type and Period (2)

Full Description

This sunken-featured building was 2.8m wide, at least 2.2m long (the eastern end was outside the excavated area) and 80cm deep. There were four postholes around the edge of the pit base, 20-40cm deep (0506, 0507, 0508, 0509) but no trace of any lining. However, the adjacent gravel was very loose and the vertical edge of the pit, as seen in section, would not have survived without revetment. The position of the building, well behind the street front, suggests that it functioned as an outbuilding, (S1).
