wall has practically gone. The loose soil obtained from the cutting- back was shovelled into the southern half of the hut to complete the levelling process, the southern half of the hut wall having been built up first so that the filling could be packed against it. Thus when the site was excavated the hard grey subsoil was encountered under 6 in. or less of humus in the upper half of the hut, while in the lower half the topmost 9 in. of humus was succeeded by 1 ft. 3 in. of loose dark-grey or black filling, containing flecks of charcoal and occasional slingstones, before the subsoil was reached. Against the south wall of the hut the filling went even deeper in pits or cavities representing probably the burrowing of rats or other animals. The hut floor was not well defined, but lay at a high level, 9 in. or so below the present surface, and was represented by a thin dark occupation layer containing fragments of charcoal and in places by the fragmentary remains of paving. No post-holes were found in the interior. The entrance lay on the west side of the hut, the south jamb being 3 ft. from the inner face of the rampart, and consisted of an opening 6 ft. wide at its outer end and 5 ft. wide at its inner, with jambs formed of orthostats placed across the wall at right-angles to the faces. Within the passage thus formed, flush against either jamb, was a shallow foundation trench about 1 ft. wide, filled with dark soil. At either end of the foundation trench on the south was a post-hole about 9 in. in diameter, with packing stones in situ a similar post-hole was found at the inner end of the foundation trench on the north, and it is probable that a post existed at the outer end also though the hole was not found. Hence the entrance probably contained a pair of upright posts at both ends (though from which pair the door was hung is unknown) together with a timber framing of some kind occupying both sides of the entrance passage. Small finds in Hut 1 comprised 612 slingstones, thirty-six rubbing or pounding stones (seven of which were broken), three hones, a lignite (?) spindlewhorl with central perforation (Fig. 13, No. 2), four stone spindlewhorls (one unperforated) (Fig. 13, Nos. 10-13), a frag- ment of an iron object (Fig. 13, No. 1), one saddle-quern, and numbers of fire-reddened and shattered pot-boilers. About half the sling- stones were found together in a neat pile against the inner face of the hut wall on the south-east.
