Log ladder, formed of a radial 1/8 split, oak timber with an original diameter in excess of 380mm.
The oak log ladder was preserved in situ against a pit edge, footed in a stone-packed slot on the pit floor. It had degraded away at the top but was otherwise intact.
Two steps cut with an axe were present and two stop marks, where the blade of the axe had cut into the wood, were recorded.
This example had been used to provide access to the floor of what is interpreted as a possible ritual shaft.
