El Araj Excavations Day 12 (Week 3/Day 3). The weather is heating up and so is our excavation. We continue to excavate the squares and bring them down to earlier periods. There were some very interesting finds today, including a possible Roman arrowhead, several coins including a small one from the Roman period, and our first decorative bead found at the Roman level. This evening the students were treated to an excellent lecture by Professor Chaim Ben David from Kinneret College on "Synagogues of the Golan."
