Another Mesolithic gravel bed deposit uncovered at Stainton

 1 - The red outline shows the newly excavated gravel bed at stainton , again the bed is about 300mm deep very compact and very level .
 2 - The red outline I hope shows how compact and flat the stainton gravel beds are .

 3 -  Again I hope the red outline in this image shows uniformity of these ancient gravel beds .

 4 - As shown in many previous posts the widespread Stainton gravel beds are far from erratic deposits , and cover every area of south west Cleveland I have excavated .

 5 - The yellow outlines show the ever present grey - blue organic deposit that sits above the gravel beds at all locations .

 6 - A close up of the blue - grey deposit .
