MONKS MOUND SLUMP
This picture shows the area that was excavated by a track hoe down to and below the main slip zone. The stair step structure is believed to be the best way to stabilize the slump damage. The area was later back filled with a different type of soil than was taken out. This picture also shows archaeologists mapping the soil features in the side and step walls. The soil features show ancient erosion repair and the mound construction process.
