And we’re back!

Season 2019 started off well with all the sandbags removed by the second day and a big yellow JCB instead of the usual weed-whacker to clear the undergrowth.

Prof. Michal Artzy gave the students a tour of tel Akko on day one and gave them the benefit of her vast store of knowledge about the tel and the surrounding area.

On day two we have our first special find, courtesy of  Helen, who found a small object (possibly ivory) with markings on it and a hole drilled through  it.

Jihad is back making the best coffee in Israel – or certainly the most welcome coffee, and our students are prepped and primed for a month of hard, dirty work.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]

Our big yellow weed whacker is of great interest to the local birds who swooped in for the feast.

About jennie
I'm the irritating person who's always there with a camera - wanting an interview, asking silly questions and getting in the way of the serious archaeology. I'm an author, a publisher (Fernro Publishing), an ex-advertising agency owner and Creative Director, a mother and a grandmother. I only do things I really want to do now - building Tel Akko's website with you was one of them.
