While the Portuguese-era Bahrain Fort (Qal'at Al-Bahrain) itself was being restored, active archeological excavation work was going on in the moat all around it, led by a French team. The foundations date back several thousand years.
The ancient date press was gravity-fed. The weight of the dates forced date honey out, which accumulated in the channels at the lower end.
