Visited the tell today and two developments: Podcast for SciAm and fixed up road!

Today, I visited the tell and the following transpired:

  1. I was interviewed (by the excellent journalist, Kevin Begos) for a podcast to be put out by Scientific American. This should be online sometime in the fall and I’ll post more details when available.
  2. On the way to the site, I was pleasantly surprised that the paved road leading towards the tell has been completely fixed up. From the  main road (Route 383) until the turn to the power stations, the road is repaved, painted and even has safety barriers along parts of it. And from the turn to the power stations towards the tell, the first half is now paved (that will save the cars and buses a lot of bumps!), and the rest of the way, which still is a dirt road, has been flattened out very nicely. I hope this will stay as nice until the summer – will make things a lot easier…
