Yesterday, I made a quick visit to Safi. While waiting for the person who I was supposed to meet (who did not show up…), I think I may have noticed an additional feature that might be related to the Aramean siege trench. Since I’m not completely sure of this, I won’t give details about this (you know, the classical teaser…), but I do hope to check this out, in-depth, at a later stage. Who knows – maybe we’ll find an Aramean camp????
Later that afternoon, I gave a lecture on the excavations to the Gezer team (their base came is at Neveh Shalom, near Latrun) – and needless to say – impressed them with our finds! :-)
Just a week and a half to go!
