This picture was taken several weeks after we were at the dig, so it is interesting to see how much work was done. You can see the area where we had dug under the sunshade at the far left of the picture.
Based on the finding of the inscription and several other significant items they decided to open squares in this area this season. In this area they made some significant finds that tie in with what they found the previous year.
You can read more about this inscription and others by clicking on the link to my post Ancient Inscriptions.
I also used this picture of a jug with an inscription in my Ancient Inscriptions post. Both the bowl and the jug are on display at the Israel Museum.
It is exciting to read about artifacts that are found near where I was digging. I am hoping that in the future they will publish information about some of the finds in the square where I was digging.
Who wants to go dig with me?
