Preseason Day Ten

Question of the day, wall or not a wall? Modern or ancient? These are questions we hope to answer once work starts in the new area on top of the South Tell. And yes, we walk the area, see things like this line of stones and we wonder whether or not they might be a wall. The first picture is of the stones in question.

Lots of other work going on today. Ben continued setting up computers, Josh, Sarah, John and I worked on pottery projects and Robyn, who arrived yesterday evening, started working on the Islamic glass collection. The second picture shows Robyn at work.

Hot and windy today. A taste of what is supposed to arrive this weekend -- the hot winds from Egypt.
