The rectangular shaft of the palace
well-room with its spiral of basalt
stairs is carved into the bedrock; it
measures 8 x 9 m at the top. At the
bottom, 18 m down, waterlogged
cedar timber was uncovered in a
heap, probably the remains of a roof
which collapsed when the palace
was burned down. The light trace is
a kerosene lamp being carried down
the stairs.
