2015 Field Season Day 18

Today we have some pictures from Community Day. Each year, we host a group of junior high and high school students on the excavation. The students learn about the archaeology and history of the city in which they live and our volunteers get an opportunity to share their new expertise.

The students excavated for two hours, ate breakfast with us, got a tour of the ancient site, and then washed some pottery. It was a fun day for everyone.
