Rain

Finally it rained on Sunday evening.
We didn't have any rain for two months and a half in this area.

The earth was too dry, and we always worked in the hot and dusty air until last week.
It was hot also today. However, we enjoyed a day free from dust.

Deoxidised soil formed under the continuous wet condition

In the north end of the excavation area
There might be another room in front of the room with apse which was excavated and denominated "Vano 7" in 2006.
It is not certain yet why we can find this deoxidised soil only in this area.

Now we are about 1.5m below the floor level of Vano 7. But we doesn't reach to the floor of this room yet. The floor of this new room might be stepped down northward.

The collapsed wall was eroded by a flood, and a part of it was washed out.
