|3500bc - 2500bc||A causewayed enclosure whose ditch bottoms contained pottery fragments, flint flakes, stone, burnt flint, animal bone fragments, antler, and a human jaw bone. Most deposits were found in groups within 0.3m of the ditch bottom. There were traces of fire in two places after silting.
Some material adhering to the inner surface of a Windmill Hill sherd was identified as burnt bone. The sherd was found in the primary rubble of the causewayed ditch in Cutting III. This may have been a burial, but it is uncertain.
RC: from antler fragments in primary rubble of Ditch BM-205 2760 +/- 115, from charcoal in upper silt of Ditch BM-208 1840 +/- 130
