This season at Jalul we will be excavating in four fields, three on the tell and one in the Islamic Village that was opened last year. We will be excavating in fields C, D, and G. In fields C and D we have been excavating houses dating to the Iron IIC/Persian Periods. This season we hope to continue to expose the structures as well as begin to excavate levels below the houses. In field G we are attempting to expose more of the city wall and determine its date. There is also an unusual plaster “channel” that we want to explore in more detail.
