Beneath this was grey sandy silt with shell, mortar and charcoal inclusions; there were several medium-sized limestone fragments deposited irregularly throughout this deposit. No dating evidence was found for these lower deposits, and no archaeological structures were identified. Museum accession code: 1990.1018. No further info. Parent record.
