Want to know more about the building Ben is sweeping?
So do we. We won't be digging here in 2015, this area is being turned over to the park, but there is every possibility we will dig somewhere nearby.

It's size and the remnants of the luxurious materials looted from it, suggests it was of some importance. One has to wonder, what might be found in its vicinity. Hopefully, we'll find out during the 2015 summer field season.
