My first archaeologist’s trowel! Maybe I’ll find something really amazing, like an inscription that mentions a biblical character or event. I’m getting closer to choosing a site (Gath or Hazor). I think it’s going to come down to housing. Please pray that the dig director will allow Julie and the kids to stay with me at the dig instead of having to find housing for them somewhere else. Rooms are at a premium for these projects so there may be some resistance to five extra people taking up space when they won’t be participating.
Update: Here are link to the other tools an archaeologist uses.
