Work is ongoing with the installation of the safety bollards around the perimeter of the Plaza. If you visit today, you will see areas being worked on and previously worked on areas open for pedestrian use. Over the past several weeks there have not been significant archaeological finds in the safety bollard locations since much of the impacts are within a zone of concrete and caliche base. This means that there has been little work occurring within intact soils that could contain artifacts.
Archaeological work associated with the preservation of the Church and Long Barrack continues. Six excavation units were active during the week; two on the south side of the Church, two associated with the north wall of the Church, one located on the south side of the Long Barracks, and one small unit located at the threshold of the Church. In addition, the archaeologists worked on backfilling a couple units that have been completed and fully documented.
