A possible platform structure exposed in section in the drain face 0.65m from the field surface. It was composed of brushwood and roundwood elements oriented ENE/WSW. The elements were densely packed with the larger roundwoods towards the bottom of the structure with the lighter elements placed above them. The elements ranged in size from 0.02-0.06m in diameter. The site is located 0.15m below ME-KND015 and 2m south of ME-KND014. A single piece was sampled and later identified as alder and dated to 1510-1260BC. The peat was moderately decomposed with occasional inclusions of eriophorum. Date of upload: 27 August 2019
