The end of the season is right around the corner. We have one more week of excavation. Grid 51 will continue to excavate the 7th century while also digging their probe to bedrock. Their final goal for the season is to establish the full occupational sequence in their area of the tell.
We'll also start shifting volunteers and staff to the compound as we begin end of season, and end of excavation, projects. This week promises to be one of the busiest of the entire season.
Today, some more staff photos from previous seasons.
