Centre Saxon ditch

Period 1 - The centre ditch, has been cleaned out and probably deepened on more than one occasion, and its sides considerably eroded.
Period 2 - The sides of the ditch have been considerably eroded in period 2.
Period 3 - The few stones in the lower part of the fill have possibly been derived from deposits resulting from the destruction of the wall, but the ditch does not seem to have been deliberately filled in this period. It has subsequently filled up naturally with earthy clay [548, 505] over a period of some time without further disturbance.
Period 4 - There are no features of this period in this section.
