Notes:   This is the layer of bone on top of skeleton 970. Ther eis a child's cranium in the east end, facing north, but it does not seem to be articulated with other bones. The bones are not lying in anatomical position with many turned the opposite direction. A mandible is located to the west of the skull, overlaid by a raidus and two possible humeri (edit: femora). The layer lays on the lower (eastern) half of a primary inhumation child burial for which there is evidence for the use of a coffin (iron nails with wood on them in a rectangular shape around the burial). There are only juvenile bones in this layer. Most, if not all of the bones fall within the coffin lines (cut 972).
