This is our final day in the field for this season. The whole group went to Waheida to carry out some excavation and planning of some of the many lined stone arrangements that lie along one side of this vast wadi.
A small group continued the detailed GPS survey of the features of the site, and while doing this more surface metal and other finds became apparent. It is hoped that the detailed mapping of these features, together with the archaeological excavation and study of some of them will yield further insight into the exact nature of, and relationship between, the many arrangements of lines, circles, rectangles and other patterns of stone marked on the ground.
Before dinner we held our usual 'wash-up' session, where a representative selection of finds was put on display and the directors spoke about their reaction to the work this season. Without doubt this ha been the greatest season for discovery and development of the project to date, and further news of these will be released as soon as possible via the press and this blog.
Tomorrow is our final R&R day before we begin preparations for travelling home in the next few days. Many thanks to all of the team for being so helpful in making this blog interesting and stimulating for me to do, and especially to our followers, commenters and readers who make it so worthwhile.
