Well, the new sewage drain and water pipe installation is well under way. The team of contractors have been working hard all week to dig a trench right across the island. They began outside the farmhouse, and while they continued up the hill towards the Fog Horn compound, the Archeologists seemed to stay put. In fact, our archeologist only began her trek along the ditch and up the hill this afternoon.
On a few maps the site of a monastery is described, just to the North of the farmhouse. Our Archeologist has discovered a substantial wall that could potentially belong to the Monastery. Also uncovered is a stone paved floor with walls to two sides. A pottery fragment and a mysterious jaw were also discovered on the scene.
In the photo above, the farmhouse is to the right. What could be the monastery wall is just beyond the fence. The paved area is by the black and white measuring stick with the remains of a wall bordering the paving stones to the right and below. The black and white measuring stick is 50cm long, each mark is 10cm.
