Today, we had some great dig participants from The Master’s College and Israel College of the Bible. They all had to brave the wind, rain and cold. Despite the conditions, we were successful in removing all of the winter weeds and debris from our old and new excavations squares. We did this despite encountering a good deal of moisture throughout the day.
Among the notable initial finds for the opening day of the season, were a couple more chalices from Area B (thanks must go to the cows of Tel Burna since they helped us find them by destroying the balk 🙂 ) and a nice spindle whorl. Tomorrow, we will be carrying out full excavations in all areas – that is if we are not rained out… Drop by if you are interested in finding some amazing finds related to the Canaanite and Israelite period!
Here are a couple pictures from the day (thanks Debi for photos):
