Archaeology Notes

Activities

Field Visit (11 May 2009)

A gathering fold overlies what may be the remains of an earlier cellular building. A possible cleit, unusual in both shape and build, stands immediately to the W and is perhaps more readily interpreted as a freestanding cell belonging to the fold.
