2015 Field Season Day 36

As the end of the season approaches, everyone's schedule gets busier and busier. We will try to have pictures of Grid 51 and Grid 16 tomorrow. If not then, certainly within the next couple of days.

We finished excavation in Grid 47 today. We will clean tomorrow and then photograph and backfill on Tuesday. With this excavation, we gained a lot of useful information on the occupational sequence of the city in this area.  

We also hosted some guides for the National Parks Authority in Grid 47. They spent an hour digging with us, learning about what we do, and how excavation contributes to the history of  Ashkelon. After digging, they went on a walking tour of the site.
