Three days of work and the walls are looking good!

Posted on Updated on

Today we completed our third day of work in the field.  we have been focusing on cleaning along the northern side of the tell, where the fortification walls are best seen today.  We have been cleaning along the walls, and have extended the exposure of the segment that Aharoni and Amiran had already seen 50 years ago, to reach the northwest corner of the summit, creating a nice segment of wall.  here you can see the team that was on site today (and thanks to them for their hard work) in front of that same segment of wall.

From Left to right: Debi, Shawn, Joel, Joe, Joel and HooGoo (thanks to Amit who took the picture).

Here’s some of the gang having breakfast (You see, sometimes we do rest)

And here is the eastern end of the north side, with the upper wall exposed.

Lets hope for more fun finds!!!

    Great shots! It is up to you, but your phone numbers are posted only on the BAR website, not your own; I had to dig to reach you right way : ) You might want to post the contact info here.

    Dear Joe, Itzik, Amit, Debi and all the rest:

    Good luck on what we all hope will be a successful dig for year in the future. When does the Libnah visitor’s center open?
