|Eastern wall of space 113. Only partially revealed. This appears to be an earlier wall associated with spaces 150/151 which was re-used in the phase seven building - space 113. It was clearly abutted by the southern wall 75. |

To be continued 1998.
Wall 88 was excavated further in 1998 to improve it's stability. this involved removing the upper two courses of bricks from the northern end, and upper four courses from the southern end where it was extremely precarious. The brick and mortar material seemed fairly homogeneous throughout this although there were large lumps of plaster and clay in places in the he mortar. The brick an mortar (2866) and (2871) were excavated separately for floatation sampling and then removed as a single composite unit (2889) until a stable level was reached. To be continued in 1999?
Where the wall turned to the west is soon petered out. It doesn't appear to descend further than the upper four courses of the wall F88 and was unsubstantial and very weathered. It could be that it was carved into when wall F75 was built to the West.
