South Extramural Area: July 10, 2007

As you can see in just a few days the crew has uncovered a lot of wall.  There were two small 1×1 meters opened up, one to the North of our ever expanding trench at N96-97 E508-509 and one further East at N97-98 E 509-510.  The purpose of this is to find where the wall is headed.  Already in the Northern 1×1 there was a few rocks found, however these rocks were ruled as wall fall from the main wall. In the photo, you can see how the whiter patches (the sandstone rocks) in the Northern unit look a little slanted. We were sucessful in finding the wall in the Eastern 1×1, as the wall nicely continues east.  Due to the wall continuing East and only having a few more days to dig, we brought out the backhoe, which expanded our ever expanding trench even further.  This was done in hopes to remove most of our overburdern, which contains not much cultural fill, so we can get to finding the wall and where it turns quicker.
