Descriptive Attribute Value(s)
Description E-W wall preserved to the depth of 3.5 metres on the north side of the trench. The wall was exposed to a depth of 55cm and we did not yet find an associated floor in the sounding completed 31 Aug 1998. The wall consists of large stones (30x30cm size range) held together by coarse, blocky cement; in the core of the wall there are smaller stones as well as the wall. Certainly seems to be late Roman/Byzantine in date, given the associatd finds/glass, coin, pottery). The wall measures82cm wide, although much of the north face of the wall is incorporated into the baulk. The wall is interdigitated with a N-S wall (F173) that forms what may be an enclosure. The wall is partially disrupted at the west side but probably will be well preserved in the "baulk" to the north. Abuting the wall on the NW is a very large stone, which also disappears into the baulk
