The pic above shows the cleaned bones, all found in the same area of red clay at Kell gate Staintin, just up stream from the structure.

I visited a different area of Stainton beck that only shows the red clay deposit that usually sits well above the gravel beds, and found quite a lot of mineralised bone buried in the stoneless clay.
I decided to do a small excavation and was surprised to find what appeared to be a small road, pathway? made from mostly whinstone ( basaltic andesite) from the Cleveland dyke at this location.
Also there was no steel or iron to be found in the wood nore any pottery, or brick the ends of the wood have been chopped away not sawn.
