Day 4 – the fun continues

Posted on

Today the weather was much nicer, making it much more pleasant to dig.  We had quite a few friends who hadn’t been at the dig yet join us, including Itzick’s family – David, Ilana and Julio – Tirtza, and Alex Zukerman, and old friend and colleague from Tell es-Safi.  we continued work in all of our squares, but probably the most significant feature discovered today is what seems to be a round silo, with very fine sediment enclosed by field stones.  we will continue to excavate this in the coming days, and see if we can figure out its exact function.

All in all, a very fun day – as you can see by the pictures here (and once again – Amit, Mindy – thanks!)

Here are David and Ilana getting some work done.

Unfortunately, Joel LAmbert, who was with us from the beginning, left us today – thanks for all the help.  we’ll miss you.

here is the silo….

Lets keep our fingers crossed for tomorrow!
