The men are now working around the stone mastaba G 7620 first seen on Monday. Here they have found the interior chapel and are clearing this and the face of the mastaba. In the debris over the southeast corner of this mastaba there was a late (?) male body burial. The so-called "chapel with arches" [G 7517] is now also being cleared. Here is a sketch plan (no scale) of the area.
