In Trench 1, one of the trenches originally excavated in the 1930s is re-excavated; interestingly, the points of the stakes still survive despite having been aerated.
In Trench 7, a cremation pit has been recovered. The pit was found within what looks like a small and ephemeral enclosure, just within the box rampart on the western side of the site.
A shot of a box section of the posts of the box rampart in Trench 3. All structural timbers
(forming part of the box ramarts or four-post structures) are flat-bottomed, and appear to have
been set in carefully dug postholes.
In contrast, where posts or stakes formed alignments, such as for the so-called 'palisade' and for the causeways, the timbers have a rough point and have been hammered into the ground.
