Section L–M



Layer structure and inclusions Section L–M

The southern sidewall stone had already tilted towards the chamber at the time of the excavation. The soil within the chamber was predominantly dark brown. In some places, yellowish “loess islands” were visible, some of which contained bones of cattle. A thin white layer of gypsum could indicate an ancient trampling layer or plaster floor.
