The final photos have been taken. The last few volunteers in the field are working to prep the grids for the winter. In the compound people are working on inventory, bones and registration.
Hard to believe the six weeks are over. Needless to say, for many of us it passed in the blink of an eye. For others, it undoubtedly felt much longer. We'll keep blogging through Wednesday so check back. And then make sure you drop in periodically during the offseason as we continue to update the blog with Ashkelon news. In the next few days we'll also try to do more of a season recap. For now, I leave you will a picture of each grid on the last day of the season. And, in the case of Grid 38, the last day of excavation as the grid, which opened in 1985, is closed for good.
