- A small sample of our work is shown below.
The research is ongoing and there are multiple and various tasks performed,
by team experts
at Newcastle, England, and St Andrews, Scotland, Universities.
Several terraces are trenched and sampled for OSL dating.
Those excavated in Mezapo were particularly short in height, lacking soil and filled with stones,
in comparison to those from Kitta and even more, those from Rintono.
Mortar and plaster samples from ruined cisterns are also under study
