|Area: South |
|Dug in Year: 2005 |
|Feature Type: Posthole |
|Shallow concave posthole situarted in base of foundation trench  for wall F826. Posthole is well defined and contained two loose fills which peeled off from the cut with ease.|
No post pipe visible. Post probably removed rather than decayed in situ. No finds.
Relationship between posthole F1522 and cut . Not immediately apparent, however, as it is in base of cut and no other postholes visible it is probably related. Also suggest that post removed rather than decayed so deliberately removed prior to construction of wall F826.
Function of posthole uncertain-- possibly some sort of structural aid-- possibly pining plank represented by (11363). But too wide and shallow, and only the one. Possible it was a marker post for planning extent of B42. Alternatively structurally related to another part of B42. Prior to construction of F826?
In any case it would point towards both planning and spohistication in the construction of B42.
