2016 Field Season Day 11

Grid 51 is making a great deal of progress in Week 2. Excavation of Persian layers continues in the street along the east baulk. Elsewhere, they are continuing the excavation of the 604 destruction as well as exposing more of the earlier city.

It was hot today, mid-90s, but most volunteers (and staff) are now used to such temperatures and simply shrug them off. Shade cloths are an archaeologist's best friend! We have two more days of digging this week, a day and a half to relax and then we'll be into Week Three!
