In addition to documentation with still photography, J. Mark Kenoyer videoed the "granary" areas excavated and narrated details of the stratigraphy and of the brick construction.
Excavations were conducted in the narrow space running west from the buttresses and between the interior walls to determine what was inside of the "granary" structure.
After excavation, "granary" buttress  was reconstructed using the original bricks set into modern clay mortar.
All of the sediment and artifacts were removed from "granary" buttress  for analysis, revealing the method of corbelled arch construction.
