Subgroup Narrative Text

    • Layer (1403) sealed (1435), the fill of grave cut [1434], which was dug for skeleton 1436. Some pottery which does not appear to be in situ is present in this grave fill. Context (1458), placed stones, overlay skeleton 1436 - just above the knees. The stones were a mix of sandstone (mid yellowy orange), and limestone (light greeney grey). The northernmost stone is sandstone, the other is perhaps limestone- looks as though it has been worked. Skelton 1436 was male, supine, with the right hand over the pelvis. The grave cut appears wider than you would expect.
