Full Description

In plan building 23 took the form of a room flanked on each side by a narrow room or a passage of standard width. To the east there was a footway, probably originally covered. The demolition of Building 23 cannot be closely dated but a dearth of late material from the site suggests that the building may have been knocked down in the 2nd or 3rd century.<1>
