Isolated hearth

The site has been interpreted as an isolated hearth which was presumably used once or twice for warmth and/or for cooking. The absence of other features and of finds renders further interpretation difficult. Comparative sites where isolated hearths were discovered are relatively frequent in archaeological works but in many cases these isolated sites are not radiocarbon dated and the absence of any finds means that potentially they could date to any period.
