It must have been disappointing for the workers when Woolley told them that trench A would have to wait until everybody was more experienced at digging burials. However, they turned all their efforts to trench B where they had discovered a temple called E-nun-mah. Close by they also found part of a massive wall.
The season ended in early spring as the temperature became too hot to dig and Woolley returned to England. After all his exciting discoveries he was keen to return in the autumn.
