Subgroup Narrative Text

    • Cut into by a number of Roman features, (1634) was a lense of charcoal rich sandy silt mixed with brickearth. This dumped deposit was seen as a secondary backfilling event of pit cut [1638]= [1643], that also held primary fill (1637), which was seen as a slumped deposit resulting from the pit having been left open for sometime before being backfilled. The pit is seen as a gravel extraction pit, and was dug into dumped layer (1784).
