Subgroup Narrative Text

    • Ditch cut [320] was dug into (317), the fill of ditch [318]. This ditch ran east – west and fill (317) was a moderate-firmly compacted dark yellow-brown silty clay. It held occasional inclusions of oyster shell, fragments of red CBM, pot, and sub-rounded pebbles, all of which were well sorted throughout the deposit. Of high significance in deposit (317), was the find of three disc-mouthed flagons identified as products of the Little and Much Hadham kilns of north-east Hertfordshire. Two were complete and one was near complete, except for a broken neck. They were found standing upright towards the eastern limit of excavation and were clearly deliberately placed in this position, probably a form of ritual deposit. This type of votive deposit is more normally found within grave cuts, however in this case, [318] was definitely not a grave, although its position would indicate an association with mausoleum base {1839}. Ditch [318] cut into (1928), the fill of [1929].
