Setting up for the dig

Posted on

Today, we spent the day at the tell, marking the squares for this coming season.  As you can all see on the map below, we will be returning to the areas that we excavated last June, expanding them with new squares as well as returning to the old squares.  We will also be opening up a new area (marked B on the map).  Note that this area is outside of the summit and its fortifications.  we hope here to either find the Iron Age city that extended outside the walls, or possibly earlier levels.  And in fact, in the survey we collected quite a bit of Late Bronze Age pottery from here.  it will be interesting to see.  Can’t wait for tomorrow. Thanks to J for the map!
