Thursday, June 3

Our square is about finished except for the shouting. We've already been assigned the square next to it to see what's there. Sigh. It has a large 3/4 meter mound on half of it that also has to be cleared out carefully. We'll probably be on this one until the end. I'll get a picture tomorrow. Here's (another) John standing in our cleaned square. That area where he is standing is relatively clear of stone so we're digging down to the wall's foundation. If he stood as far as we've gone down, only his head would show. Behind is the wall of the podium on which the temple stood and around him is where it fell.
