Today, I was on site with a group from the Weizmann Institute, a class in Archaeological Science, led by Steve Weiner and Elisabetta Boaretto.
The tell and surroundings were nice and green, and there was water in the Elah Valley riverbed.
We toured various parts of the tell. I gave a general explanation about the site and our excavations, and Steve and Lisa spoke about a few of the studies that they had led on site.
Really nice day, and a great group. Here are some photos:
