Early progress . . .


Working in four teams, the Concordia dig crew has been making good progress at the start of the excavation season.

One team is working on the southwest corner of a colonnaded building.  They have reached a depth of 3 meters in the square and should start exposing floor in a day or two.

See their progress here:


A crew working with Dr. Chambers has already discovered the line of a small street (Cardo 4N) that may form the eastern boundary for the Northeast Church compound:

One of our returning volunteers, Christine Mennicke, recovered this large coin from the destruction fill of our southerly square.  On one side a cross is visible.  On the other, perhaps an eagle.  Further cleaning and analysis to follow:


Watch for more news in the coming days.
