Season 2019 is in full swing

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]
