Closing out Week Two

Posted on

Tomorrow, we close up week two of the dig and head into our last week of work.  in honor of this occasion, and to toast our three friends leaving us this week (Sandy, Andrea and Daniel – hope to see you all again next season!), we had a falafel dinner and just a general nice time shooting the breeze.  one of the nicest things about htis season has been the great dynamic amongst the volunteers and staff, and just the great environment surrounding all events.

As far as work on the tell in the past few days, well it seems like its been a loom weight party, with clusters of these little clay balls, used as weights when preparing a garment on the loom, appearing along the slope and in the center of the summit. In Area B, Matt and his team continue to decipher the LB levels there.  after removing a wall today, they recovered the pieces of a very nice LB bowl – way to go!

Here are some pics (thanks to Ido Jeremy and Itzick)
