Brittany, Trevor, and today’s volunteer, Emily, spent the afternoon in the sun making a drawing of the very complicated Unit 7. The large stones lying between Brittany and Emily are likely from the foundation wall of the wash-house, though it’s still too early to confirm.
David was a bit lucky to be working in the shade today. However, the material he is excavating here had the consistency of a soft concrete. Progress was slow going. And yes, that is a massive wood beam much like those found last year. In fact, this might be a continuation of a beam we uncovered about 4 meters behind the camera from where David is kneeling.
The material David was excavating is the reddish-yellow material just sitting in front of the wood beam. I’ll go into more detail about this area in a later post.
