G 6037 X: Lined with small dressed stones. North wall is casing of G 6037. unfinished, no chamber. Depth on north 1.15 meters. Depth on south 2 meters. Filled with drift sand.
G 6037 Y: Lined with mud plastered rubble except on north where it rests against casing of G 6037. Deeper on east, depth of east 1.5 meters, depth of west 1.15 meter.

(4) Causeway (of G 6040 ?) south of G 6036 and G 6037
From the lower level of rock south of G 6037, a causeway rises over the fissure to the level of the floor of G 6040.


This causeway is of rubble and has a rubble parapet on the north (perhaps also on south). Just south of it, is a second rubble causeway or enclosing wall. There is a space between this second wall and G 6041.
