089 – Day 19

Today was cloudy so we spent the morning cleaning the enlarged area of sector Q. A group of us was defining the stone structure deeply affected by the 1996 ploughing.


It was here that the bell beaker displayed earlier was recovered. Today another beaker shard appeared and also a copper sharp awl.


The other group was cleaning just few meters away, and a circular stone structure start to appear.

 
Some work after, it looked like a tholoi type structure. Unfortunately half of it is behind the section.

Here you can see how close both structures are and how differently they were affected.

In fact, the possible tholoi barely escaped the ploughing, as you can see by the bottom of the marks.

A good morning for the process of characterization of  the central area of Perdigões.
