Today, with the heat wave still going strong, the winds on the site went wild and made digging very difficult. this was quite upsetting since we had our biggest team out there today. in the end we managed for most of the day, but closed up an hour early….
however, we didn’t waste time, and headed back to the Kibbutz for pottery washing and reading. one of our team – Yael, who came for the day – found a sherd with parts of two letters (possibly one being a Yud). We hope this is thee first of many, and thank Yael for her attentiveness. Here are some shots for the day. there is also a short movie on Mindy’s blog, to give you the feeling of what it was like in the wind today.
