Another Roman Fortification

We have a couple days off now to rest and relax on our weekend (Friday and Saturday). Friday was a spa day and I relaxed in the Dead Sea pool at the Movenpick and had a wonderful massage to sooth the aching muscles. Life at Tall el-Hammam is rough. We have a saying that there is nothing like a pampered digger/supervisor.

Well on to the archaeology. On Thursday at lunch I took our crew over to the Tower complex that the Jordanian team are excavating. No doubt the entire MB city wall may have been lined with towers. The walls are 1.4 m thick and very impressive.

Well it might be a Mt. Nebo trip today and might even go for another dip in the pool.
