Detail of section 1, showing the dismembered remains of the wall, though with some of the lower stones probably still in situ. The clay packing behind the wall shows on the right. The layer of destruction deposits is cut on the left by the palisade trench of period 4, which is filled with darker material. (For a detail of the section of these deposits to the left, see photo 1/26; for a detail of the remains of the wall see photo 1/7. For a general view which includes the wall, see photo 1/2)
