Mysterious hole on Margate sands

This picture I am sure is for the Archaeologists amongst us, it is a perfectly round hole in a bed of clay that has uncovered on Margate main sands . The last time I saw something like this was when there was erosion at St Mildred's Bay, Westgate in 1988, at the time a middle bronze age hoard was found.

Standing in the hole is solid sand which is a indictor that the actualy dug depth of the hole in the clay could be deeper.

This reminds me of a Time team program when they discovered a tree buried upside down on a beach on the east coast!
