Abstract


Part of a possible rectangular building comprised a series of short clay and cobble foundations in a broadly N-S row were interspersed by large postholes, many with packing stones. Fragments of Roman dressed stone had been used as packing in some of the postholes. Other features included four pits and a number of smaller postholes either side of the foundations. The date and function of the structure is uncertain.
