After we came in from the field, we relaxed until 4, when we went back out into the field. We spent the afternoon moving rocks and buckets of gravel to fill in a part of the temple in order to preserve the foundation of the beautiful frescoed temenos in the western side of the early shrine. It is where Grace's square was working earlier. Tonight is Nanette's last night before she returns to Minnesota to play in the Ordway's production of Guys and Dolls, and we will miss her greatly!
Here is our square yesterday, before we pulled the last fill rocks. Tomorrow, we'll probably start heading out from our eastern balk. We're hoping to find evidence of a propylon, or monumental gate.
