Agger 4

A line of stones in the northern edge of the dike extended for 1.40 m E to W in the space between the eastern and western sections of the crosswall & perhaps was part of the EW wall, dividing building B from room C (see Berg I p. 121ff, under possible wall). When the present floor level is taken down to the second & lower pavement, this possibility can be confirmed.

Agger 9

The trench was divided into 3 sections as follows: (see note p 76) A - 3m wide; B - 3m wide; & C - 5m wide


thereby making a total of 11m wide by 12m long. Fill was removed in 2 one meter wide cuts, 1 in section A & 1 in section C, both flanking section B, in order to find the EW crosswalls first & then to work outward to the two major NS walss.

Section A

A very heavy concentration of stones in the fill. Usual pottery & tiles. Sima concise frag.

Section C

Less stones & more clay fill. Found: frieze concise & iron nail in addition to a heavy concentration of tiles over the presumed pavement, indicated by the usual tarnish band.
