Looking at the north side of central test pit.
Top - edge of concrete base and hardcore, overlays -
Garden soil layer, with a high volumn of rubbish in it
White - Compacted Chalk tipped into the pit to stablise what was
probably a soft area.
Rubbish Layer e.g. oyster shells, pottery, glazed bricks, early clay
Limit of dig reached, as shoring would be needed to go further,
without finding natural at base - may go down much further/.
