It's Week 4! The first half volunteers have departed and we've been joined by a new group of volunteers. We've also been joined by a team of microarchaeologists from the Weizmann Institute of Science. The next three weeks promise to be as busy as the first three as we continue to work. Grid 92 is exposing more of the Middle Bronze Age while Grid 94 continues to excavate the Hellenistic period. And in Grid 23, work continues on the large Roman/Byzantine period building exposed last week.
