What is a Typical Day Like on an Excavation? (or, A Day in the Life… Again??)

Rebekah Dutton has a new post titled “Archaeology Dig – A Day in the Life” describing a typical dig day at Ashkelon. It may be fun to compare it with this post of mine from July, 2009, describing a typical day at Khirbet Qeiyafa. Curiously, we chose similar titles for our posts. (Are we all Beatles fans?) Notice the similarities – and differences – in our daily schedules. Both posts have photos.

Some of you may be aware of a new story on Khirbet Qeiyafa that was announced by the IAA a few hours ago. The Israeli press already has the story along with a blog or two. Its headline guarantees it will hit the US/UK media quickly. I’ll have my own comments and some photos posted shortly.
