Thank You for a Great Season

That's a wrap. The first season of Tel Shimron is in the books. Fair to say right now, the supervisors are in the books too. Deep, deep in the books linking top plans, finishing notes and finalizing stratigraphic relationships.

We learned a great deal this first season. In Grid 92, we excavated MB domestic contexts. In Grid 94, we excavated a Late Hellenistic/Early Roman mixed use domestic-industrial courtyard. And in Grid 23/24, we excavated a Roman, Byzantine and Early Islamic neighborhood.

Thank you to all the staff and volunteers who made the 2017 Tel Shimron field season such a successful one. See you next time!

Thank you Valerie Tewell for this drone shot of the volunteers during their final tour of the tel!
