Sample text

Many plaster remnants in fills above suggest there was more than one floor, but this could not be proven. Aside from nebulous grooves, hollows and scattered postholes (1127-8), there were definite fixtures which attest to the unusual nature of this once large structure. Its east and north-east floor area was devoted to cooking and storage. Here was an oven 1170 (location: Fig. 50), two earth ovens, 883 and 1117, the latter against the wall, and two probable pot pits, 11456 near the oven. Pit 1145 still retained 37 sherds of a large RB/B storage pot.

The former only cut the upper fills, but the latter penetrated Floor 1. There was, therefore, little beyond the wall arc left in situ. However, the density of artefacts in the upper fills is unlikely to be intrusive as it was possible to demonstrate the very limited extent to which large sherdage had been turned and dragged by the plough, and there were joins between sherds in those fills and in primary occupation 878. In addition, lower components of negative features were recovered in Floor 1, and where their tops were untouched by furrows, they could be ascribed to the building.

It was founded on silt and grit wash levels, the final, 2071 with some Period 3B sherds, the earlier ones, 2072-3, 2079, with Period 2 material (cf. Fig. 2). The second, more extensive feature possibly related to the wall, is 2060. Initially regarded as the collapsed northern wall of B 855, its limestone blocks were consistently much larger and differently shaped than extant wall stones, and they lay in an unstructured heap in a shallow hollow starting c. 1 m from the wall base. Only a few stones, 838 and 2053, were found on the bermlike area between the line of the wall and hollow.
