Trenches in 3D

In 2011 after the de-vegetation, we found irregular robbing-pits and re-fill layers of former undocumented excavation-activities. According to our policy of minimal-invasive excavation-practice, we started to only remove the material of previously excavated areas. By removing fill from the 19th and 20th centuries, we had the chance to clean profiles, and were thus able to document the building-history of the portico MFP.

In 2016, we excavated a room, TFR 2, behind the northeastern portico, MFE. In this room we discovered a sanctuary hidden beneath the Hadrianic portico and shops. We encountered several deposits, which were 3D-documented.
