Burial- presumably late but dating to before constructioni of Building 41- Byzantine building - as truncated by construction cut of foundation = 12627.
Infant burial - skeleton laid in lining of reused Roman / Byzantine floor and roof tiles and burial covered with the same.
Late burial. Roman / Byzantine dating from tiles of the lining and cover. Dates to before construction of Building 41 (Byzantine structure) as Feature 1476 is truncated by construction cut 12627.
Burial had a lining of reused Roman / Byzantine roof and floor tiles and a cover of the same. The lining and cover 'contained' the skeleton and two fills. A further backfill - 12655 covered the entire burial.
The skeleton - of a 1.5 - 2 year old infant was in good condition (as to the survival of the bones) but was truncated by the construction of the foundations of B41 - resulting in the loss of the skull. The full extent of the feature - including the tile lining is unclear- due to this truncation.
The skeleton was excavated, planned and lifted by LDH
