Subgroup Narrative Text

    • Heavily truncated deposits (1016), (1018), and (1020) were initially thought to be fills of separate pits. However this understanding changed and it came to be realised that these fills were the remnants of back filling events for the quarry face recorded in subgroup 209. They were seen as related to slumped gravel deposits (2186), which formed the primary fills of huge Roman quarry pit [1261]=[857]=[661], the earliest anthropogenic feature on the site.
