No. 555: Gray wood with yellow plaster filling. Fibers run north-northwest to south-southeast. Perhaps part of 516b. (see *A3863, *A3897)

Removed 516b: Brown (no plaster visible). Seem to end just beyond 562. This was part notconnected with cut [ILLUSTRATION] in 521. Section [ILLUSTRATION]. (see *A3863, *A3897)

Removed 556: Black wood, displaced (?), lies across north end of 557. Grain runs east-west.
[ILLUSTRATION] W 1.3 cm, Th ca. 2 mm

Removed 557: A line of wood fragments runs southwards to heap of bowls. This appears to be the bar which fitted the cut in 521 which would require that 557 be 4.6 cm wide and 2.3 cm high.
