The excavation of Structure Twelve

A short video compiled from pictures showing the various stages of the excavation of Structure Twelve. A stunning building when first constructed — utilising carved and dressed stone — excavation over the years has shown that a problem with its foundations meant it required some fairly extensive renovations.

Later building work, which was nowhere near the quality of the original, included the incorporation of an annexe to the north.

From the archive – July 2008

I forgot about this entirely. A short test video (hence the terrible quality!) made in July 2008, and subsequently filed away in my archives.
