Just a quick note to say that we've had a successful move. The Leon Levy Expedition to Ashkelon has decamped from the Dan Gardens Hotel, which is closing tomorrow for what is believed to be a two year renovation, and taken up residence in the Leonardo Hotel. Just a quick 10 minute walk north from the hotel, the new place is a world away as you can see from the picture above.
It's a big week for us. Our patron, Mrs. Shelby White, has arrived for her annual visit. We have a fantastic lineup of lectures, starting with Professor Larry Stager on Carthage tonight, and series of events which will culminate with our annual Finds Display and party this Thursday.
And yes, there was a lot going on today in the field including the early arrival of 604 B.C. in Grid 51. The next few weeks promise to be very interesting.
