Day Twenty-Four

Another hot and humid day in Ashkelon! 

Things are busy in Grid 51 where volunteers have been excavating inside the Persian period building that covers much of the grid.  To the left, volunteers work in one of the building's rooms.

One of the most interesting facts about the building is that it has mudbrick floors!




Yesterday in Grid 51 Nichole uncovered an Egyptian alabaster juglet on a late 5th century Persian period floor.






Meanwhile, yesterday in Grid 47 Patrick climbed out of the probe he is digging to do a little picking.  Ben looks on as Patrick display his skills in the art of dismantling walls.
