What Is It?

Yesterday Sven dug out dirt to create a space for the outside shower beside the house. He has always dreamed of being an archaeologist and the afternoon labor came quite close. Imagine our surprise to discover a domed brick structure, six inches below ground level! It is obviously very old, but what is it? What was it used for? When was it placed here? There does not seem to be any visible access or door, so storage is excluded, unless the door rotted away. An ancient septic tank? We do not have any idea what Sven has uncovered and would love to hear from any readers who recognize this new garden feature.
