The day started with staff members cleaning two of the three excavation areas. Then, a short break to learn about some new features in OCHRE, the database we use to record all of our data.

Only a short while later, the first of four classes showed up for a day of fun and archaeology. Many of them will be back tomorrow and then again next week as we introduce local children to archaeology and Tel Shimron.

The day ended, as it began, with OCHRE and more discussion of some of its many new features.

We are one week away from the arrival of volunteers and the official start of the 2017 field season.
