Sunday, February 21, 1926 (continued)

(1) G 7000 X
Removed Nos. 108 to 113.
This brought us to the seat bar of the chair on the south (right side) and to the fragments of the legs on the west of the chair. The underlying debris is cleared to rock.
The left side of chair cannot be examined because the eight slabs lie on the hind leg of chair. To lift these photos of spaces beyond a, b must be photographed.
The floor debris is about 1.5 cm deep. It consists of a layer of limestone chips and dust overlaid and penetrated by the organic dust and matter resulting from the decay of the wood, etc.
Except for a few small fragments the gold leaf is on this floor debris (debris of decay).
The most difficult part of the clearing lies in front of us. The inlaid table or box or chair on the west side. The inlays have fallen in a jumbled mass.

(2) G 7050
Cleared through the debris to the southeast corner of G 7050 down to the Dynasty 4 floor.
