Osa=sx58se9. HUT 80 (4M BY .914M); THIS HUT SEEMS TO HAVE BEEN REBUILT AT SOME PERIOD AND PROBABLY WAS NEVER CIRCULAR. A VERY LARGE STONE MONOPOLISES THE INTERNAL SPACE. A CORRODED PIECE OF IRON WAS FOUND(POSSIBLY A MODERN KNIFE) ALSO A LARGE RUBBING STONE, POTTERY AND A VERY GOOD ARROW HEAD FLINT.
