Update for Friday, July 23, 2021

Last day of the 3rd week came and went with some nice results.

In Area S, several nice finds included a zoomorphic vessel (already reported), and several other almost complete vessels.

In Area M, more and more finds from the 9th cent BCE destruction. An interesting feature (which was sampled extensively) was a burnt brick wall with plaster still adhering to it.

In Area D East, various elements of the fortification were further exposed, including parts of an outer tower and a possible paved entrance.

We said goodbye to several team members who left at the end of this week. One more week to go, though with a much smaller team.
