Axe Head

"...the cavity left by a timber was backfilled with an ashy deposit rich in charcoal and charred barley and this also contained bone fragments and a greenstone? axe [2142]. This seems like a deliberate deposit which is focused on the south west corner of the platform, an area which was also marked by red painted plaster in an early phase as being 'special'."
