We have located 3 shafts in the court, which we have named G, H, and I (A-F are inside the tomb). These shafts are discussed in a separate section on the courtyard shafts. On the plan above is marked a rough stone wall, which is presumably part of an animal enclosure--there is a food trough in the corner (the curved shape in the plan); this wall is visible in the right-hand of the two photographs above. Other structures were found, such as ovens in squares 1 and 2, and parts of a brick building, probably another animal shelter, in squares 11-14. These are all modern, from the period in which the tomb was inhabited.
At the front of the courtyard are the remains of some more areas of brick, marked in a heavier black shading in the plan. We think that these are probably ancient, and are the remains of a brick wall which once might have enclosed the front of the courtyard. The lighter shaded areas near these areas of brick are (probably) ancient stonework, and might perhaps have been where the rock on the side of the court was artificially extended to the front of the court. Friederike Kampp has reconstructed such a tomb like this:
