What we know about
- The shallow trenches on the
plan may have had something placed in them.
- The triple post holes were placed
at a gap in the trenches.
- The single large post hole was
just outside a gap in the ditches and trenches.
- Building A stood opposite this
gap. It was huge and rectangular. It was twice as big as all the other
buildings. It was built of very large pieces of wood. It probably had
a door at each end. It may have had a raised platform at the far end.
- The gully was very close to and
along one side of Building A.
- Building B was very small and
rectangular. It stood very close to the door at the platform end of
Building A. It was built of wood. It had two rooms. The smaller room
may not have had a roof. The bigger room contained a pit that had been
- Building C was small and
rectangular. It was built of stone. A ruined medieval chapel now
stands on its site.
- Building D was quite big and
rectangular. It was built of wood. It had lots of post holes inside.
These were probably walls splitting it into several rooms. It may also
have had wooden furniture built into the ground.
- Area E stood between a trench
and Building C. There were lots of confusing post holes here. Things
found included a small crucible, pieces of moulds, some gold and
- Structure X looked very strange.
It appears to have had three rooms. Two outer rectangular ones were joined
by two very small corridors to a central round corridor. This went
around a small round room. One of the outer rooms had a hearth
(fireplace). The round corridor and room may not have had a roof or
may not have been a corridor and room at all.
