Day Nine

Day Nine

In Grid 44 we continued to expose what appears to be a building, possibly a house, with a courtyard that has a shallow basin or pool. Inside the building we have a room that produced a lot of material culture from iron nails and a copper alloy hook to slag and a possible earring. Sammy had the find of the day as she uncovered a coin while articulating one of our walls. Tomorrow we will start working in the adjacent square where we expect to uncover even more architecture.

Today, a view of Grid 51 where they are making great progress in clarifying the Persian period city plan.

Tomorrow, more about Grid 38 where they continue to focus on the Philistines and the Iron I.
