The same supply canal that possibly fed the Queen's Bath also fed this structure, the Great Tank, at the southeast corner of the Royal Enclosure. Davison-Jenkins points out that the tank is remarkably shallow. He suggests that it was not only a ritual bathing area but a settling pond from which clean water could be skimmed. The archaeological team that excavated the tank shortly after 1900 reported clearing it of silt and finding under a stone floor slab a chamber containing a skull and other human skeletal remains of a human sacrifice.
