It was a hot and sticky day but we soldiered on with excellent results. Just a few quick images as I have to go and collect more data. Did you know that archaeological geophysicists are renowned for wanting to collect just one more grid of data?
Firstly, the overall survey after day 12.
We’re getting there! Now a detail of the area surveyed.
We have some more of the ‘1955 ditch’ at the bottom, then some buildings, a large open area with some pits, then in the top-left corner more stone buildings along the road.
The GPR did some blocks near the temples, specifically to cover part of the sinuous ditch.
As you can see, the long building with the corridor on the north shows spectacularly well. The ditch, however, does not show at all. This may be because of my quick ‘rough and ready’ data processing and a more detailed examination in the future may show something.
Off to survey more before the rain which is forecast for 2pm. Let’s hope it is late!
