Subgroup Narrative Text

    • It is probable that [1015] was a recut of [1064], another large quarry pit that was filled by a series of slumped gravel deposits that stratigraphically consisted of latest fill (1060), (1061), (1062), and primary fill (1063). These gravel fills were noted to slope down from south to north.

Dating Narrative

    • Roman potter has been recovered from these fills dating to 50-300AD, and no other datable material was recovered from the deposits. However, given that these fills overlay primary fill (1063) which has been dated to 1480-1550AD, it clear that the Roman pot is residual, and that the deposits from which it came were dug from the vicinity of the site in order to back fill the quarry pit.
