After their first weekend off, the students have returned recharged and ready to dig! Despite the many bruises and sores that I sustained from my hiking trips, I felt more motivated than ever!

We have a fantastic group of local Jordanian workers who assist us, many of them have worked with with me during my previous excavation last summer.
