We spent the day preparing a test trench for excavation tomorrow as we continue our search for more information about the urban core of Roman Ashkelon. The new trench is approximately 20 meters south of the odeon, located in the center of the park, and presents us with another opportunity to investigate the expansion of the city during the Roman period.

It may not look like much now but in a day or two, we expect to see walls.

It's very hot and very sunny in Grid 47 and hopes are high we will find something interesting. Stay tuned for more.
