Subgroup Narrative Text

    • Pit cuts [1500] and [1527] were dug into (1585), which formed the upper fill of pit [1588]. This pit contained a number of fills and underlying (1585) was (1599) a very dark humic layer, which overlay primary fill (1600), seen as representing a silting up event at the base of the pit, indicating that the pit was left open for some time before being backfilled by (1585) and (1599), probably dumped to reclaim the land left open by the excavation of the pit. The pit was probably dug as a gravel extraction pit, and was dug into (1612) the aggregate fill of pit [1613].
