Another day of heat, flies, tough plants and some interesting wildlife on the site; mongooses, wild boar, scorpions and birds visited today.

We started cleaning up the thick bush in Area B but the work really became very tiring, time-consuming and difficult and so we hired a sub-contractor with a tractor who is a qualified operator of this small tractor for sensitive work. Some of the work was also done with a chain saw.

We worked on an area 15 metres by 21 metres by 15 metres that is vertical to the nearby dirt road.

Professor Michal Artzy came to site to view the progress and to encourage the volunteers with Ragna Stidsing an archaeologist with the Hatter Lab.
