Inventory of the containers in the pottery compound continued yesterday. Along with sorting through objects and samples, some collected 20 years ago or more, many students had an opportunity to help sort pottery for specialists working on publication projects.
Today, efforts will likely turn to the washing of pottery collected during the first four days of cleaning and excavation. One more day of digging this week. Friday the volunteers will go on a field trip to Jerusalem. Saturday is free and then Sunday is Seminar Day when students have an opportunity to learn about the technologies we use, take tours of the site, and learn about the inner workings of a modern excavation. Monday we will be back in the field.
