Apologies for the (almost) two month gap in posting. I have been quite busy with a new baby, finishing the dissertation proposal (which I defend on Friday), finishing my final class as a student ever (!), and preparing for our summer dig at Tall Jalul (I am undergrad field school coordinator, as well as in charge of all our GPS equipment, so I’ve had more responsibilities then usual).
I am currently working on getting a Jalul dig blog going where we will have students and supervisors posting, as well as pictures, videos, and other content. During the dig I hope to make a topographic map of my dissertation site, Safut and also map out all of the areas excavated. I will be going early and staying a week late in hopes of hunting down material from the site in the DAJ warehouse and museums.
