Chris has kindly set up the updated countdown clock for the 2014 season at Tell es-Safi/Gath (June 29 – July 25, 2014).
As of today, there are only 265 days to go. The good thing is that every day that goes by is one less to wait for the season!
And here is a picture from the 2013 season – just for fun:
This is a view of a bunch of us in Area A (including Prof. Ami Mazar [in the blue T-shirt, in between me and Louise] who just happened to be visiting that day) looking at the ivory bowl/lid (we still have not seen what it is) as it’s being excavated. Cool!
