Description 2002-9-26fAB stones at the bottom of f216 but not pit fill: phase 2 [Input file: M926LR.J / M926LR.-J]
2002-9-26lR Small to medium sized river cobbles with rounded smoothed edges white in color that were found below the pit f216. These cobbles are mixed with a brown matrix and do not belong to the pit f216 which we initially thought. The cobbles continue to go through the pit wall and are localized in the South east side of the hole created by the pit. [Input file: M926LR.J / M926LR.-J]
2002-9-26fAB Possibly the fill of the drainage system(?) a24. Fact that it contains pebbles does not seem to suggest a closed drainage system though. [Input file: MX12FAB.J / MX12FAB.-J]

Recovery/Assignment and the Record
Daily 2002-9-26lR Yesterday we decided to continue digging f216 pit after reviewing the deeper pit f250. These pits are the only windows into the function of the baked bricks f194 that are below the stone pavement. The pit f216 showed a reddish material with some river cobbles emerging which we believed to be the end of the pit fill. We removed some of these cobbles f338 but they continued going down and a bright red material f339 was found to the west of the cobbles. Today we continued to remove some of these cobbles to see if it was still pit fill and since they continued through the pit wall seen inside they cannot be pit fill. We removed all the cobbles at the bottom until a brown soil with traces of charcoal and pottery emerged leaving f339 to the west. [Input file: M926LR.J / M926LR.-J]

2007-9-5mKB This feature had mixed pottery from Phase 3 and Phase 1. A number of S and WS sherds in this feature date to Phase 1 and probably are a result of later pits dug into the stone pavement which brought up sherds from below the pavement. See also note regarding date of f315. [Input file: WY01LC.J / WY01LC.-J]
