(1) Street G 7500 (continued)
The work done today in this street may be summed up as follows.
On surface: Men are clearing away the Ptolemaic-Roman debris northeast of G 7630 A, north of G 7638 A, and north of G 7637 X in what may be the mouth of a new pit.
G 7510 Q: Clearing pit. Chamber at west. Clean sand is still coming up from 13.25 meters and pit still descends.
G 7511 A: Clearing pit. Chambers north, east, and west, and one on a higher level to south.
G 7512 D: Clearing pit. Down 6 meters.
G 7635: Clearing pit. Down 360 meters. Disturbed debris. Dirty sand came until about 3 meters then a layer of sand a good deal cleaner and after that the dirtiest of Ptolemaic-Roman robbers' debris.
G 7637 A: Clearing pit. Down 165 cm. Robbers' debris (late).
G 7637 B: Clearing pit. Down 530 cm. So far only the clean original filling has come from this pit, white chips of limestone from the first workings. So there is some hope of this tomb being undisturbed unless it was broken open from the east at the bottom.
G 7367 X: Pit clear. 340 cm deep. Chamber open on east.
G 7638 A: Pit cleared. 125 cm deep. Chamber on north roofed over with slabs still in position.
G 7639 A: Clearing pit. 670 cm deep. Blocked chambers on east and west which have been forced through a narrow hole.
G 7639 B: Clearing pit. 600 cm down. Robbers' debris.
Pit west of G 7637 [= G 7640 A]: Pit cleared. 420 cm deep. Chamber opened anciently on north. From this came a pot filled with bones.
Pit G 7633 A is an ancient pit which has been reused at a time approximately contemporary with the crude brick walls of G 7633 for the mouth has been raised to a height far above the ground level in Old Kingdom times and comparable with that in Ptolemaic-Roman times.
(2) G 7430
Still clearing the late debris from G 7430 C and the rooms and pits associated therewith.
The work on the Great Pyramid for Dr. Borchardt continues as fast as possible with the few men [about 30] employed. The casing blocks have been found on the south and east and traces of them also on the west. On the south face there are ancient Greek inscriptions left by visitors, also graffiti in early Arabic and one in an, as yet, unidentified Anatolian script together with several Latin. These have been "squeezed" by Dr. Borchardt.
