22 boxes of tiles.
Section C To find the continuation of the NS wall of agger 1, a cut
2.65m long was taken in the western part of this section. A wall, with a decided slope to the west, was uncovered. It appeared to be made of one course, 1.30m wide, and on the west, at a slightly lower level, there are stones extending another 0.40m in width. Outside the wall, to the west, there are a few tiles. The interior of the room thus formed is 6.15m wide (EW).
Tiles began to be lifted in the southern strip (1.80m wide) of the section, leaving a 0.50m band as a "dike"next to the southern EW crosswall in section D.
