Corner.... or not.

Well, dig diary went not as planned because well, the dig did not go as planned. Expect the unexpected i guess.......

So, what did we find at the corner excavation site?
The soil covering the structure below was filled with very hard crystalline pebbles which made for extremely difficult digging. Once the soil layers were removed we were left looking at a destroyed section of the Pyramid. There is no 90 degree corner to show the world because at some point in the past it looks like it has been removed. To hide the pyramid? For building material? Who knows at this stage.

So we are left with a flattened section rather than a corner though it does give us a nice cross section of the various layers of concrete and other materials including sandstone blocks and clays.
The covering material over the surface of the concrete is present which is a bonus because the previous Sun excavations removed the material thinking it was insignificant.

To the right of the picture you can see an almost fully intact block of concrete with its covering material on the upper surface. This block is orientated and dipping at the same angle as the other blocks exposed on the Northern face. The hashed yellow line indicates where there would be other such blocks leading up to the apex prior to their removal.
Blue indicates sandstone and the grey arrows identify the covering material.

This week we have opened up two new smaller excavation sites between where we can find intact concrete blocks and the destroyed corner section in order to understand the extent of the damage...

Now for some epic news......(edit ok now I see Pablo posted some info on this already, however....)

Yesterday, SBRG with the help of a man named Vincenzo Digregorio discovered an anomalous object beneath the floor of the Ravne tunnels.
Digregorio is responsible for the discovery of 3 pyramids in Italy.

With his georadar equipment we were able to accurately pinpoint the location of an object 4m tall, 2m wide.
Yesterday we believed the lower structure was a reflection, however today we received much stronger signal returns suggesting the object is double the size we believed it to be yesterday.
The shape of the anomaly is suspicious to say the least......

Possible interpretation by Vincenzo Digregorio

There is also geophysical evidence to suggest that at some point in the past there may have been an attempt made to gain access to the object, however the disturbed sediment appears to be a vertical shaft 2m from the object. Unlucky!!!

There is excitement in the air here in Visoko and there are many ideas as to what exactly this object is buried beneath the tunnels, however geophys alone cannot give us any conclusive answers and it must be backed up with other evidences.
Digging will commence tomorrow under the supervision of Dr Sara Acconci and thanks to Dr Semir and his foundation unlike Egyptology and other sciences, the new discovery will be shared immediately with anyone who wants to know.

Tomorrow is usually our day off here in Visoko but I think we shall forgo relaxation for some serious hardcore digging..
