Some fun pictures for everyone today. Last Wednesday on Seminar Day several members of the staff went in search of the Iron Age in a previously unexplored area of the site. Unfortunately, the search didn't turn up anything other than dirt and some random Byzantine pottery sherds. The excavators where joined at one point by a herd of goats which are visible in the background of the second picture.
Yesterday, as mentioned previously, was the field trip to Jerusalem. There are two pictures of Josh as he led the tour. The first in the City of David, the second overlooking the city of Jerusalem. Jerusalem was hopping yesterday with an exhibition car race, or so I am told, and the usual last minute running around before the start of Shabbat. As expected, many people stayed overnight in Jerusalem while a few returned to Ashkelon and the Dan Gardens. Tomorrow we are back at it at 4:30 am. Can't wait to see what Happens in Week Two!
