Full Description

Only the east edge of this large feature was located just inside the west edge of the excavation. Although too little was exposed to be certain, it was probably a sunken featured building. It was 1.2m deep and was traced for 4.5m north-south. It continued, unexcavated, towards the north and the south end appears to have been removed by MLS pit 0120.
A foundation trench (0122), 1.5m long and 50cm wide, was recorded against the east wall at the south end and a charcoal band (0132), representing a timber lining, was recorded near the base of the pit, (S1).
