|This feature represents platform in the SW corner of space 201.|
On top of the platform two fire installations were found. Feature 630 close to the east edge of the platform and feature 632 in the northeast edge of the platform.
This feature has 49 units. It has gone many modification, mostly involving which replastering and rebuilding. Basic sequence is a platform cca. 2x1.2 m square which gets gradually enlarged before a final phase when it's shortened to cca. 1.2 m square.
In the first platform was bounded by series of ovens to the east. It's enlarged in the following phase over the early ovens in the kitchen area when it lips up against oven and bin to the SW corner of space 201. When space 201 was partitioned to make spaces 86 and 158, platform was shortened and was used only in space 86.
Over all, large number of refloorings and it comes to mind that because of vicinity of kitchen area and number of oven type features the platform could have been food preparation zone.
Platform 169 didn't have burials, although one small cut was emptied and we found out it was empty - a possible cache?
