There was another building covering another part of the buried army. The lights were even dimmer than the first building and the resulting colour of the photos was poor, so I turned them to Black and White.

In yet another building was a museum containing some of the finer, rarer finds from the site. This carriage with four horses is smaller than life size, which most of the other statues are, and was housed in a glass/plastic display case. Hence the reflections and lighting.
