Item image
Situated on a SW-facings slope. Topsoil stripping (02E0194) in advance of a gas pipeline identified a truncated kiln that was completely excavated as site (BGE: 1A/13/1) under the same licence. It appeared as a soil discoloration (max. dims 1.5m x 0.84m; max. D 0.3m) with a charcoal-rich fill cut into a halo of oxidised subsoil. The channel was clay-lined and there was no stone component. Other excavated prehistoric features (ME039-010 - 015) are c. 130-160m distant ENE-SE. (Tobin 2003, figs 5, 24) Compiled by: Michael Moore Date of upload: 8 March, 2018
