Charred pomoideae twig (Sample AB2) from the lower filling (Context 2B) of the foundation trench for the outer kerb of the primary monument. The trench was filled with compact clay and the sample comes from a discrete patch of charcoal - the only such material found anywhere in the excavation. The sample was sealed by a substantial level of compact clay interpreted as the packing of the primary kerb.
