BAR “dig-issue” arrives

Yesterday, I received my “hard copy” of the new BAR “dig issue” in the mail. As mentioned previously, on the cover there is a great picture of Mike Ellingsen and the stone altar from Tell es-Safi/Gath, inside there is a piece that I wrote about the altar and its significance (with nice pictures of the altar and Merav Levmore from our team), and also, we noticed that there is a picture of Dr. Elisabetta Boaretto (Lisa) from the Weizmann Institute, taking samples from an Iron Age Philistine hearth at Tell es-Safi/Gath (on p. 20).
And, of course, there is the list with the upcoming digs this summer, including Tell es-Safi/Gath.

Not to bad PR for the dig – and all in one issue…

    Sorry, I’m sure you’ve been asked this a hundred times, but why is the dig season centered around the june-july timeframe?

      Simply because that is when university vacation is, and I don’t teach, students aren’t studying and volunteers have their vacation!
