Full Description

The third ditch G1005 was oriented north-south. It was >5.0m long x 1A6m wide and had a maximum surviving (machine-truncated) depth of 0.64m. It had steep sides breaking gradually into a flat base. Its fill was compact to hard, light brownish grey sandy silt containing frequent pebbles and small to large angular flint fragments, and three struck flint flakes that are likely to be of later prehistoric date. Ditch G1005 was located in the monitored area to the west of the main excavation and its stratigraphic relationship with ditch G1003 could not be determined. (S1).
