8/700bc-100bc A settlement site where Feature 61 was a shallow hollow roughly 0.65m in diameter x 8cm deep. It contained an unaccompanied skeleton of a probable female c25-35, oriented head to N, crouched, and on its right side. There were 4 slight depressions on the edge of the hollow suggesting stake holes.

There was a second inhumation of a male (No 101), crouched, 4m east of the last. Both of these burials lay within the (later) area of pit concentration within the enclosure, and on these grounds they were dated to the earlier phase of the site when it was unenclosed, c6th-4th Centuries BC. They could therefore be part of a larger cemetery.
