|Oval shaped feature cut through plaster surface (10474) and cut by F1514. Due to the disturbance to the feature caused by F1514 and surrounding animal burrows the full extent of the cut  didn’t become clearly distinct until layer (10474) had been removed.|
Layer (10477), the upper deposit of , had been entirely removed prior to the removal of plaster surface (10474) where as part of (10479) had been left in situ.
Further removal of layer(10488) revealed an infant burial towards the base of the cut.
Truncation by F1514 and by numerous animal burrows through and arround F1513 made the initial interpretation of this feature difficult. Further removal of (10474), regretably out of phase,however cleared and defined the edges of the cut for F1513 clearer. Followed by further excavation of (10479) and (10488) revealed the partial remains of an infant cranium,Skeleton 10495. Excavation round the skeleton revealed that all but the cranium of this inhumation had been destroyed by the animal disturbance and truncation by F1514.
