Excavation has followed up the detailed survey of several significant locations in the research area

One of the first sites to be investigated was this small circular enclosure, set on a level area in the bottom of the glacial meltwater gully that runs down the hillside. The structure comprises a stone bank with a partial internal kerb surrounding a large earthfast boulder.

Finds include evidence of recent burning (within the laCHWexc3_WSst 200 years) near the surface, but below this coarse hand-made pottery and human bone were recovered. The bones represent a remarkable range of ages from adult to neo-natal and foetal bones.
