Ken Ristau on Tel Dor

19th December 2006

ristau_at_dor_sm.jpgKen Ristau (of anduril.ca fame) has written some reflections on his six-week participation in the Renewed Tel Dor Project this last summer. The Tel Dor excavations were renewed in 2003 and are directed by Ilan Sharon (Hebrew University) and Ayelet Gilboa (University of Haifa).

Ken had received a BAR Dig Scholarship that enabled him to take part in the dig this last summer.

Make sure to check out “Kurkar” Ken’s reflections on the Biblical Archaeology Society “Findadig” site. They are quite interesting.

    Tyler,

    I think that the photo is a good one of him. He looks like he is doing some good archaeology.

  2. Ken Says:

    Tyler: Thanks for calling attention to this. I’m glad you found it interesting!

    Joe: Have you looked carefully at the “artifact” I’m uncovering… I’m afraid I’m not at that moment engaged in “good archaeology.”

    Also, Joe, Tyler, and any others, I’ve posted a link to more pictures of my Tel Dor experience at my blog: anduril.ca/blog.
