Day 5 – A beautiful day before the storm

Posted on

Today, we came back after resting over the weekend, and continued work, this time with a much smaller group.  The group from Israel College of the Bible continued into their second week of work at the site, joined by a group from the Jewish National Fund and several students from Jerusalem University College.   We managed to do a lot, particularly in defining the inner wall and outer wall, and what may be the connecting wall between the two (forming a casemate), and in K7, where the removal of much of the stone rubble led us to reach a surface of the Iron Age II.  Here are some pictures, in hope that tomorrow’s rain will not shut us down.
