Interpretation

    • Deposit indicates that there has been some landscaping and levelling of areas - in and around the monument - possibly initiated by the Ministry of Works. Surface of the deposit shows signs of entrances to rabbit warrens with further signs of networks of burrows later seen during excavation of this deposit.
