    Ah yes, some of us remember this well. The slightly chubby belly of the statue had poked out of a level and appeared to be a large cobblestone for quite a while. A handy stepping stone when entering and exiting the trench. Then that area was reduced and all was revealed.
    It even got Brian Hobley out of his office and on site which was a pretty rare occurrence.
    That basement was sweltering. Good site though.
