Thanks Paul,
I have the sketch now. But I still need a measurement of a wall or area that I can scale too.
Thank again

The erection of a rectangular stone building of at least two stories (access to the second storey being made by an external stone staircase) on the south-east side of the mound . This first stone building is the only one on the site to have any foundations, being built upon a substantial raft of stones (some 0.75 metre deep) bound with clay, and this area of the site is the least affected by subsidence. The building had walls approximately one metre thick and internal dimensions approx' 9.5m x 6.5m, the height of the building is uncertain although one could attempt a calculation based on an assumption of the size of step used in the outer stone staircase.

This is an excerpt from http://www.thewilliamsfamily.fsnet.co.uk/excavate.html

I hope this is useful to you Gus.

Regards, Paul.
