A section of the base of the causeway was removed. It is illustrated alongside a section of washed stones from the base of trench 2 below. The sample from the causeway has larger stones set at the edge and some flat stones on the surface but otherwise the material is geologically very similar in composition and size distribution, suggesting that the causeway was primarily constructed of local material. (The right-hand photo does not show-up that almost every stone from trench 2 had iron staining or significant iron deposits on the surface reflecting the iron rich layer in trench 2).
