Day 1 of 2014 Season kicks off

Posted on Updated on

Today was day 1 of the 2014 season, with three days of spring work starting today. As always Day 1 is a lot of logistics, but the great teams we had from Israel Bible College (headed by Sheila Gyllenberg) and the Master’s college (headed by Chris McKinny) got off to a fabulous start.

We moved all of Ron Tappy’s equipment into our new container at Kibbutz Galon (thanks Ron – longtime excavator of our sister site Tel Zayit – and good luck with publication!), and then headed up to the tell, which was covered in green and yellow. unfortunately the green and yellow need to be removed in and around the squares, but people seemed to make excellent use of these colors!

We cleared the squares and marked them with the help of J, and got all set to sink our teeth into the ground tomorrow morning. keep your fingers crossed ! here are some more pics:
