The palisade trench of period 4 excavated, cut through the destruction deposits of the wall. The fill of this is cut by a later pit (top), in the bottom of which the stones of the wall are showing. To the left is a lighter line marking the clay packing behind the wall, in plan, to the left of which again is the turf revetment of the bank, also in plan. These show clearly in photo 1/10. A view from the other end is shown in photo 1/9.
