Beginning Again

A new field season is about to begin. During the last few days, a couple of us were busy making preparations so when the participants who arrive today can be picked up at the airport, brought to Kibbutz Lahav next to the dig site, assigned their rooms, and tomorrow morning after breakfast be taken to the tell, the ancient mound where we will be working, for orientation. Actual digging will start the day after tomorrow with clearing the vegetation that grew over the area after the winter rains. It was a very good winter and while the wheat is being harvested all around us by combines, we’ll be clearing the high vegetation.
We will be spending over 4 weeks at the site continuing where we stopped last summer. There is a house whose clearing needs to be completed; the exposure of a kitchen next to a textile workshop needs to be extended. Limited goals, but the surprises are awaiting.
