Sunday’s are long days at the dig. We start the day in Jerusalem and meet the bus to Kedma Village at the bus station.
When we arrive at the village we quickly change into our dig clothes and have lunch.
We then board the bus for Lachish.
We start digging at about 2:00 in the afternoon in the heat of the day. Fortunately, the temperature was not too high today.
Here is our square supervisor working on the plan for work in the square. I really enjoy working with Alla.
Here is a view of the square as we continue to dig down through the layers of time.
One benefit of working on Sunday afternoons is that we get to see the sunset. However, we will also see the sunrise on Monday morning.
Here is another view of the sunset with part of the sunshade for context.
After we return out tools to the storage shed we descend to the bus and head back to the village for a light dinner.
Then it is time for a shower as we have to be up at 4:00 in the morning and on the bus at 4:40. See: Early Morning at the Dig
p.s. This was meant to be posted on Sunday evening, but the internet was being contrary. We did indeed see the sunrise on Monday morning.
