    • Originally thought to be top fill of large feature. Now reckoned to represent some kind of agriculture/cultivation layer of Early Medieval period because it is not a very uniform fill, strongly indicative of a disturbance. Alternatively, it could represent soil moved/dug into from nearby owing to nearby activities e.g quarrying (so soil dug away in order to make access for new areas of grave and/or 'brickearth' extraction Nb. The initial environmental analysis of soil suggests it is not a "true" soil and is more the result of being laid down by man, not by natural causes. Finds from a 1m sq. section located at Sect. #16 taken to provide accurate dating
