Today was our last day of spring excavations – it was another gorgeous day in the field with lots of wildlife around the tell and plenty of interesting finds.
While we are quite happy with the results of our 5 days in the field – we are even more excited about the prospects of what awaits us this summer directly beneath the levels that we reached this week. This summer we should be able to uncover large sections of an 8th century BCE building atop the tell, the Iron II corner fortification (tower?), and the large LB building with its associated cultic finds and tabuns. So please consider joining us this summer – June 12-July 1 – it should prove to be our best season yet! — Chris
