Full Description

Oven [0649] was recorded in the westernmost long-section in the 1998/99 excavation, appearing on the underlay plan and in the sections on Fig. 10. The feature was obviously associated with ditch [0526], as it was cut into the northern face of the ditch while it was still partially open as a feature and, indeed, some of the debris from the oven ended up in the base of the ditch. The oven had two components; a circular (c.0.7 metres in diameter) lobe to the east, with a more elongated, probably oval shaped lobe to the west. The eastern component was lined with clay, the surface of which was baked red. Then western lobe did not have formal lining, but did have a thin layer of charcoal at its base, (S1).
