When not excavating, volunteers have spent their weekends touring archaeological sites throughout northern Israel. Yesterday they visited Nimrod's Fortress. It was the perfect place to crawl around the base of one of the massive round towers and to practice archery.
The weekend flew by and tomorrow we start our third week of excavation. In Grid 92 they expect to finish with 20th century occupation levels while in Grid 94 they will continue exposing a building that may date to the Late Hellenistic or Early Roman period. And in Grid 23, excavation will continue to expose levels belonging to the Late Roman/Byzantine, Crusader and Mamluk periods.
