Exciting Excavation

by Catie Witt

I am really enjoying my time here. The area is just beautiful and I am so excited to travel and explore the country. Excavating is tiring, but very rewarding and I am finding that once getting into “the zone” I can just keep going and completely lose track of time!


It’s exciting when you find nice pottery and artifacts, and very gratifying when you’re able to spot the difference between dirt-encrusted, man-made objects and the seemingly endless supply of rocks on the site.


Already, we have been here almost a week and I cannot believe how fast the time has flown. I am so excited to see our site develop over the remaining three weeks of excavation and also to see what other adventures are in store for our time in Israel and Jordan. I can hardly wait!
