After a very successful two week excavation in Grid 25, we backfilled it today. Before we did, we left some modern objects, small coins and a few strips of plastic, in the bottom of the trench so that future archaeologists would know that we had already excavated the area.
Tomorrow we will dig a new test trench to the south of the odeon. There, we will continue to explore the Roman, Byzantine, Islamic and Crusader periods. Check back tomorrow to learn more about our new excavation area.
