U14/712 Lower Terrace

Summary

The site showed some evidence of time depth with inter-cut pits and firescoops cut by later pits.

Midden analyses were performed on some midden samples. One fish species was identified.

The site had one carbon date performed on identified charcoal. The result indicated 16th to 18th century as the date range.

The site may have been part of the adjacent site but had a sufficient range of evidence to indicate it could have been sufficient in itself.
