Now that the election results are in, and some very intersesting shifts have occurred in the local political scene, it’s time for an archaeological perspective on what happened!
The main surprise, and “winner” of these elections is Yair Lapid and the Yesh Atid (=there is a future) party.
This being the case, it’s time to declare a new archaeological party: Yesh Avar (=there is a past)!
Just as Yesh Atid seems to have a bright future (and just to clarify – I did NOT vote for them….) – Yesh Avar will definitely have a very bright past!
The manner in which one can join this new party is very simple:
Join the team excavating at Tell es-Safi/Gath in the summer of 2013 – and you automatically become a member!
