Week 2 Roundup

Posted on Updated on

Week 2 was great, with plenty of smiles and lots of nice finds.  In Area B, Chris and his team kept the Late Bronze Age pottery kept coming.  In the eastern section, Debi and her team kept up with defining the fortifications and silos, and reached nice 9th Century BCE finds.  In the middle, Amit and his team kept exposing 8th Century architecture – lots of it seems pretty massive.  The large Silo (which now seems to be 8th Century BCE) keeps getting deeper and deeper and bring out more and more finds – the latest of which is a scarab found today! See pics below.

Thanks to all the hard work by all the volunteers and staff, who kept moving the dirt carefully so that the finds kept coming!
