075 – Day five

The excavation of ditch 7 continued. We defined a row of large stones next to the east side of the ditch. When the stones were removed a deposition of small stones, pottery shards and faunal remains (especially horns) were identified.  The rest of the ditch surface had nothing. Again intentionality.  




At sector Q we identified the other extremity of the circular structure that started to be recorded last year. It is an infra structure of a wood wall with 7.5 meters diameter and a circular plan, but that is open  to east in 7 meters (not really a gate, rather a opening of a stage).
 
 
We will get back to this extraordinary structure later, with the complete plan, to explore its implications.
