It's Friday

Well, after a rushed breakfast the volunteers are off to Jerusalem.  We'll get an update and possibly a picture or two from Josh later today.  Meanwhile, the staff, after a more leisurely morning, is hard at work entering data into OCHRE, working on individual research projects or enjoying a day at the beach.

The wall removal in Grid 51 has already started.  Below, Mackenzie works on removing a Phase 6 (Persian) mudbrick wall.

The Snake Tower continues to look more and more impressive.  Denys, Hannah and their crew have made substantial progress on clearing off the front of the tower which now looks quite impressive from the road.  Below, you can see a view from the top.
