Archaeobotanists from Tel Shimron talk with staff from Tel Kabri

Archaeobotanists from Tel Shimron talk with staff from Tel Kabri

Earlier this season, we hosted archaeologists from Tel Kabri. They toured the site and had an opportunity to use our flotation machine to process some of their samples. While here, they extended an invitation for Tel Shimron archaeologists to visit their site. Today, some staff had an opportunity to make that visit and while at Tel Kabri, they received a tour of the site's Middle Bronze Age palace.

Tomorrow we are back at work. It's the last two weeks of excavation and the end is almost in sight. This is both good and bad because we know what we need to do before we leave AND we know what we need to do before we leave. During the next week, Grid 94 will continue to expose more of their Late Hellenistic/Early Roman phase.
