When I turned up on site Jan Harding seemed pretty excited about these. There were two large pits, which Jan said were similar to the pits he had excavated a couple of years ago and he said they would have contained large posts - these are 2m+ in diameter!

He said they were part of a larger pit alignment he had identified from air photo's and they were in line with the rising of Orion for the early Neolithic period.
