Monument record MYO3500 - undated quarry pits


Observed, but not excavated during an archaeological watching brief. Visible in the deepest foundations was a series of deposits/fills composed of very light creamy white crushed chalk and light pink sand and gravel, grey brown silty sand, very light grey gravel, and reddish brown sandy gravel, all assigned context 0109. These appeared to be the fills of a series of inter-cutting features, probably quarry pits. Excavation of a sample of the features, to determine their character and date, was ruled out by the site manager
