Middle Saxon Post Hole Building

Type and Period (2)

Full Description

This surface laid building, 3m by 3m, was of individual post hole construction. The large size of the post holes suggests that they belong to a building rather than a fence, but the latter can’t be discounted, especially as the north ‘wall’ was a continuation of fence line 5140. While the north and east walls were intact, only single postholes of the south and west walls were recorded and the south-west corner had been removed by EMED building 2022. Only posthole 3272 contained any pottery (2 Ipswich ware sherds).
Postholes 2326 and 2327, in the south wall, cut into or had been set within a linear feature (2333), which was part of another possible building (2362) of MS date, (S1).
