Remains of a field corn-drying kiln, consisting of a dry-stone walled pit in the form of an inverted cone 2m in depth. The pit is roughly 3m diameter at the top, tapering to 1m at the base. There is a neatly constructed lip in masonry around the top of the pit. A tunnel about 4m long connects the bottom of the pit with the edge of the mound on the downhill side. A cloth or skin was stretched across the top, probably from a wooden frame set within the lip, and a fire was lit at the end of the tunnel. Grain was spread across the membrane to dry before being stored.
