Figure 13: Photo of house D, looking east, showing rounded gables and a stone paving in the near end, presumably relating to a byre or stable. At 40.8m in length, house D is substantially larger than other houses excavated in the pre-fortress settlement. It also remained in use for the longest time, and presented the richest finds, including a gold arm ring, found in a posthole in the eastern (far) end of the building.
