A field season isn't just about excavation. It's also about research projects, material culture processing and assorted processes. Lots of activity in the pottery compound on a daily basis.
Work also continues in the field. In Grid 16 it's all about moving dirt in the hunt for more mudbrick rampart.
Grid 51 keeps excavating the last of the Persian period and inching closer and closer to the full exposure of 604.
In Grid 25 there is only one question; where is the cardo? The Islamic period, the 11th c. to be precise, has been exposed. What lies underneath? Right now, sand. Almost a meter deep and virtually empty of material culture, the sand comes as a complete surprise. Will we find the cardo? Next week should tell the tale.
