Lithuanian to English translations [PRO] Social Sciences - Archaeology
Sorry, archaeology is generally done at places where there is either no written record or the written record is insufficient, hence blueprints are an extreme rarity. The wall in question is post-medieval, i.e. from the GDL period. In addition, when is the last time you heard of a SE blueprint of a foundation? And no, it is not blueprint of the SE foundation as no where else in these texts was the direction placed after the modified word.
Well, I see the category is not immediately apparent on the page itself, but this is an archaeology report. I do not have the picture, only the caption. The main part of picture is a situation plan with the above inset. While a layout would be the most logical thing with a plan, there is no such thing as a SE layout. Therefore, this is a drawing or a photo of said wall. Once again, one does not have SE photos of anything. While one does have SE views, it is clear from the first reference that I gave that view is something different from isklotine.
Looking at the first example, it is not view as the viewer's direction is given later. Therefore I am thinking face for the translation. Comments?

a close-up view
Explanation: Initially I would probably go for 'a wall plan', as it appears in the answers to that earlier KudoZ question, because it coincides with the notion of 'išklotinė' which has been stuck in my mind since school times (http://www.mathsisfun.com/geometry/cube-model.html). Having looked at the pictures from Lietuvos pilys in your question and not having found an actual plan as such in them, I would risk using 'a close-up view', for example, 'a close-up view of the southern section of the northern wall'.
