Northern boundary wall
These pictures are just outside the northern boundary wall; the stone building replaced a large timber structure built using posts set in pits.
Stone walls replaced the timbers, and as the building went out of use, some of the walls collapsed in or were pushed down, as shown by the pitched stones.
The stones have been compressed into the fill of an earlier pit, and to the left, you can see part of a floor that has subsided into the softer fill of an underlying pit or ditch.
At present we don’t understand what all the buildings were for, but analysis of the finds from the site, along with seeds and other environmental evidence should help.
Some of the buildings away from the core of the site may have been for storage or housing livestock. Outside the boundary wall, the buildings would have been surrounded by fields.
