Short Description:
Upper fill of large pit at northeast of excavation
Issued to

Interpretation

    • Dark brown colour suggests relatively high quantity of organic material. Backfill or secondary use as refuse pit? Possibly, same as basal fill with differences between reflecting post-depositions size-sorting, weathering and rooting.
