I attended this dig together with a few dignitaries and authors. Two or three trenches were dug crossing a very lush line of grass and eventually a brick pipe approx. 3 feet in diameter was found. A few bricks were removed and the pipe was, obviously, found to be full of water. At the time it was thought to be a pipe connecting the lower lake to the intermediate one.
