Description POSI Structural remains constructed from river boulders. There is a mill stone in the rubble, which is covered in lichen. This shows that it has been in place for a substantial period of time. There is an abundance of Roman self-slip pan tiles. The diameter of the in situ stone structure is 10 meters. There is a scatter of pottery, stones, slag, tile and chipped stone on the NW slope.Collection from POSI Units - On the first visit (30/7/03) two PUs were defined: PU01a was a 1m wide strip at the edge of the harvested field below, and the same width as the rectangular structure; PU02a comprised the interior of the rectangular walls and its tumbled walls. Not knowing about these PUs we defined 6 PUs (PU01-PU06) on the second visit, when the POSI was mapped (4/8/03), these are described in the Settlement notebook and were drawn on the map.PU01a didn't overlap any of the subsequent PUs and was renumbered PU07.PU02a coincided with PU01 and, as the collection methods were the same, results from the two units were combined.LHS 6/8/03(See also map & write up by settlement mapping team)
