Fish weir

Later Bronze Age: 1300-800 cal BC

Wet: -1.8 to -2.8m OD

One of series of V-shaped barriers or weirs that crossed the course of the channel. The weirs were constructed off-site as long sections of hurdles before being slotted into position using deeply set posts. This particular example was replaced at least twice.
