Type and Period (2)

Full Description

This deep circular pit was 8m to the rear of building 0191, and probably contemporary. It was heavily truncated on its north side by the cellar of a post-medieval building (0112), and excavation was restricted by the eastern limit of the excavation. Only the top metre of fill was excavated, but an auger hole showed a further two metres of fill above the base of the feature. No waterlogging was recorded but the size and depth of the feature suggest that it was a well, (S1).
