Closing up the first week

Posted on

Thursday we closed off the first week with a bang!.

First of all, the weather was beautiful – nice and cool.

Amit’s friends Yehudah and Yossi came to visit and brought with them many treats including cookies and watermelon.

Aren Maeir ad Louise Hitchcock came for a visit and were quite impressed with what we found so far.

And on their way out they caught a glimpse of a whole smashed vessel that Chris and Mindy had discovered.  They were very familiar with this type of vessel, since they have the same vessels at Tell es-Safi/Gath!

Unfortunately, we had to say goodbye to some of the team – thanks to David Mescheloff and Eitan for all their hard work!

The pieces of the whole krater,

And Ido looking good after a great first week!

Hope next week is just as great!
