|This pillar is engaged to the eastern wall by successive plastering events - little or no plaster can be seen behind the timber (just brick) so it can be assumed the pillar was as with other house, one of the first feature to be established. The burning has preserved the actual structural timber which survives to a height of 0.45m (0.40m x 0.19m). At the highest point (1.20) the plaster appears to have taken on a more decorative aspect. A boxed form that came within the backfill and around the pillar is most likely a detached element of this decoration (see F6065). |
The plaster Is 0.04m thick as it is on the whole eastern wall. It is a white marl and very fiberous.
Sample of charred timber taken for species identification.
