Full Description

0615 is a north to south aligned ditch, irregular in plan, with an average width of 0.85 m. It has a variable depth and profile, ranging from shallow with a flat base to a U shaped profile. The northern end of the ditch is barely traceable where it continues beyond the edge of the site and is likely to be truncated. A single fill was identified throughout the various excavated sections which consists of a mid-dark brown friable silty sand with occasional charcoal flecks, bone, post-medieval CBM fragments, and pottery of prehistoric and Late Saxon date. The ditch is cut by several of the elements of building G5005. In terms of location, alignment and size, this feature looks similar to ditch G5001 but the range of finds recovered are very different, even taking into account the amount of disturbance by later features.
