Day 5 of 2022 spring season

The 5th day of the 2022 spring season was a great success. The remote sensing team finished the 2nd area that they are collecting dating from, and tomorrow, we finish off the third. In Area D East, we continued working in the two squares and have nice Iron IB materials, as well as several very nice phytolith rich levels, which should provide a lot of environmental and other data.

We finished off the day with a quick visit to Tel Miqne-Ekron, which has an enormous and beautiful wheat field in its center – perfect for the soon to be feast of Shavuot!

See pics and clips below.

Tomorrow is the final day of the short, but very successful season, and we’ll finish up the remote sensing, take final fotos, and conduct various types of drone photography.

Great season – super team! Thanks to all!
