Fall 2009 Excavations - Tiberias Israel

"Week 1"

***********************************

The season began with most of the volunteers working on the western square, an area previously explored in the spring. During the week,additional ground was opened on the eastern side of the square. It proved a labor intensive plot which produced little at first.....but would yield much in the following weeks. The Bedouin workers were busy expanding the northern section they had worked in the spring and a small crew began to further explore the mosaic we discovered during the last season. After work one day we all headed north and visited
the khan Jubb Yusuf(Joseph's Well) where Katia gave an informative account of the site.
