In order to tie our seven trenches into the wider landscape, we go surveying and make a record of any stone features we encounter.
A square stone on its own and the floorplan of what looks like a house!
A large scale wall and a possible well .
All this is also an opportunity to learn more about the vegetation. Above right, the feature which we interpret as a well was shrouded by a thick cover of dhigga (Hibiscus tiliaceus). Screwpine trees (Pandanus tectorus) seem to appreciate archaeological features; they are often comfortably settled over ruined stone structures.
Elsewhere on the site… work is clearly coming to an end.
On an unrelated note, but something I really had to mention. We have been eating very well. Including screwpine cake..!
