Day Seventeen

The picks were swinging, just like we said, and now the walls of 38 are down!

So too are the walls of 47 where the Crusader and Abbasid/Tulunid phases are almost removed thereby revealing more and more of the Roman odeon which we plan to start reconstructing once the season is over.

Today the volunteers went on a tell tour during which they visited all the excavation areas where they were able to learn about the Philistine, Persian, Hellenistic, Roman, Byzantine, Islamic and Crusader periods.

Just a short entry today as we gear up for Community Day tomorrow when 25 Israeli students will be joining us for a day of digging.  Stay tuned for pictures of all the fun!
