Archaeology 4: East Pavilion

9 July 2020
Possible horse trough

This section was cut across the demolished east pavilion. It uncovered a flagged floor, patched and leveled at various phases with cement and mortar. The west wall seems to have been robbed out.

What is very interesting is the upright flagstones. They seem to form a long kist. It appears that this may have been a horse trough. The stone tank could have been lined with lead to keep the water in.

There is a well on the other side of the wall. This was found by Ivan some years ago and was capped off to prevent sheep toppling in.

That is all for now.
