Tel Hazor

The Cistern - amazing from two perspectives: ancient technology and archaeological excavation.



Joelle and I at the Cistern. This was during Cookie Break at 7a.m.


During Cookie Break, in a small grove of trees not far from our dig site and even closer to the 9th century BCE store house. The shade was necessary, even at 7a.m.


Looking east, at around 6a.m. one morning. Normally, there were never any clouds or very few. I like to think of the sun shining like this as my grandparents stopping by to say, 'hi!' while I'm here.


The sentry/lookout tower on the westernmost point of Hazor. From what I remember, this is the 'youngest' area on the tel, but I can't remember the exact time period and haven't written it in my journals. (if I'm wrong, please correct me!) I took this photo from the road - this is what we saw, although in shadow, every morning at 5a.m. on our way to dig.
