Trench P in 3D – the next best thing to being there

Regular readers of our daily excavation blog will recall that for a few days in August, towards the end of the season, Trench P was the subject of a major clean-up operation.

All hands were on deck, with over 60 diggers diverted to Trench P ahead of a massive photography session and the creation of the first 3D model of the entire trench since 2016.

Well, the effort was worth it and the resultant 3D model can be viewed in all its glory above (it’s a very big model so be patient while it loads).

If you’ve ever wondered what it would be like to spend a day inside the “corner of loveliness” – aka the cell outside the eastern entrance to Structure Twelve – or walk along the pathway to the rear of Structure Ten, this is truly the next best thing.
