0104 – Day 31

Today we finished the definition of the stone structure in the enlarged area of sector Q. It looks like a sort of circular cairn with stones involved by a dark and very compact clay. Might be the sealing of something (a tomb maybe).


And here its spatial relation to the tholoi shape structure, with Monsaraz in the horizon, precisely at 90º.

But today we also collect part of a schist slab partially affected by the deep ploughing. The rest is still under the section of the excavation area.

And it is all decorated. Here are some areas. You can see what you want: triangles, reticulated areas, sun, and even some anthropomorphic shapes. To be studied by the specialists.
