Further exploration of Area B is proving very fruitful indeed.
We proceeded to clean the shaft/section and to straighten it as much as possible. We found remains of what we believe is evidence of an earlier survey carried out by the late Prof. Avner Raban. We found a metal stake and signs indicating that he excavated in nearly the same area that we opened. The cleaned stones now show us that the wall is vertical, which indicates where the inner harbor is situated, although the outer face was utilized as a breakwater.
