Today was the day!!!! We were 14 people making history at Tel Burna, as we began the first excavation ever at the site!
We started the day putting up the shades:
We then split up into four squares, which we set up in order to create a section along the eastern slope. And we couldn’t of asked for a better first day…..
We managed to move plenty of dirt….
and along the way, we managed to catch the outer face of the fortifications,
and we found some nice pottery along the way (mostly from the Iron Age), including this piece of an oil lamp
with some hard work, we got a lot done and hope that the good times continue.
Thanks to Mindy and Amit for the pictures!
