|This large L-shaped platform is located in the SW corner of sp 336 just in front of where the crawl hole is assumed to be to space 337. A grind stone is set into it. And this may be indicative of the platform's function as a preparation area. Its location next to the storage area is perfect for this interpretation. |
The surface of the platform is heavily burnt and according to Karl Harrison (pyro-tech. specialist) this is the probable location for the seat of the fire. The plaster is dirty off-white marl onto an orangish make-up.
The platform was covered by a relatively thick layer of wood ash and timber fragments, and a cluseter of animal bone and grind stone.
