Immediately east of the workroom, upon the Khufu Causeway, we have dug today through the Old Kingdom masons' debris down to rock in a small area. Several narrow cuttings run to south of this, most probably for ancient quarrying operations.
At 11 meters northwest of G 7000 X (door at foot of stairs) and about 20 cm above native rock, in this deposit of white chips was found at noon a cylinder seal of limestone [25-3-256] 3.7 cm high, 2.4 in diameter and 8.0 in circumference. Cut in the surface is the following design
apparently consisting of a palm-tree, a seated man or ape, over the heaven sign [GLYPHS], followed by four or five not yet clear.

Now lowering blocks back into position in the pit. The board covered with cloth was left over the door, a second was laid in the midst of the re-blocking, over the whole pit. Near the door were laid the best of the blocks. All over surface blocks were pressed in into closest contact possible with one another for greatest strength. This blocking work was continued all day up to the depth of 2380 cm from pit mouth, this representing a solid mass of stonework 247 cm thick.
