Removal of volcanic materials

Until now we have almost finished of the removal of volcanic materials in the area shown in the figure below.
And now we can see partly some of ancient soil before the eruption of 472 A.D. on its surface.
On the other hand, on both side of this area the removal of volcanic materials still continues downward.

We started the excavation on 14 July in this year.

Currently, we remove the remains of volcanic materials of the eruption in 472 AD.
We have to dig the ground to a depth of about 8m to remove all of these deposits.
