After the Mesolithic knolls (ME005-088002-, ME005-088003-) had almost been obscured by lake mud a stony platform (dims 9m E-W; 3m plus N-S) was established in the Early to Middle Bronze Age, largely over the E knoll. It was represented by a layer of stones, including fragments of two saddle querns, and two spreads of charcoal (dims 5.8m x 1.85m plus; 1.25m x 0.5m). There were two huts on the platform. This hut (diam. 6m) was the earlier and represented by 15 posts with few finds.
