It might look like a mess . . .

The Concordia Team had to dig down some 3.5m to reach the opus sectile floor of the colonnaded building.  The room is a fine discovery.  But the height of the baulk and the use of the area to the north as a road could endanger team members.  So today, we used a backhoe to lower the level of the road by about a meter and to create a lower “shelf” next to the square.  Some tumble resulted, but the site will be safer as a result.

In the small finds department, Jim retrieved a large bowl trapped when two stones fell together.  We think we have most of the parts to assemble the find.
