an excavation site of an old house, Insa-dong, Jongno-gu, Seoul

In front of Tongin building located at Insa-dong an excavation was undergoing when I was passing the street today. I sketched three pieces using pencil and pen. A young man who was noting the size of width, length and height of each stone in the site. Three men were removing earth from the stones very carefully. The Tongin company might have tried to explore the frontal area and found the old house foundation while digging. Cultural properties protection committee would supervise the excavation.
