:lol: Meerkitty, close enough. :clap: :clap:

The following three days were spent digging, Farini felt that the discoveries they made amply repaid their toil. On digging they came to a pavement about twenty feet wide, made of large stones, the outer ones were long and lay at right angles to the inner ones.

The pavement was intersected by another similar one at right angles, seeming to form a cross, in the middle there seemed to be the remnants of earlier may have been an altar, column or some type of monument, the base quite distinct, composed of loose pieces of fluted masonry.

Having searched for hieroglyphics or inscriptions and not finding any, Lulu made a few sketches and took some photographs, Farini decided that he would leave it to those more knowledgeable than himself to judge who may have occupied and when, the place.

Well.....here goes: In 1948 an informal verbal agreement was made between who/what, to set up a conservation area in the contiguous areas of the two lands?
