Late prehistoric pit

Here’s a nice (if I do say so myself) 3-D model of a 0.9m diameter pit uncovered (excavated and recorded by Keiran Boyle) during an evaluation in Northumberland during the summer of 2019. The pit is likely late prehistoric in origin with at least two periods of use. The model is detailed enough that you can look at the cross section of the pit fill and see the deposition layers and burning. 

Interestingly, the remains of a curled lead artefact were found within the last deposit placed in the pit. Hopefully, the palaeoenvironmental and radiocarbon samples will tell us more of the date and use of the pit!
