Tall el-Hammam Team Season 10 - Day 4

Tall el-Hammam Team for Square 20SS and 21SS
Our team in our two squares this season. The team represents three from New Zealand, one from Russia, one from Australia, one from Canada, and several from the USA. We have an international team doing a great job.

Joshua Errington (Australian), on the far left, is one of our square supervisors. Josh is working on a degree in Archaeology from Tel Aviv University.

Craig (far right) is working on his PhD at Dallas Theological Seminary. Craig is originally from New Zealand.

Peter and Helen are also from New Zealand and Peter (blue shirt) is a pastor there. Helen (back row far right) is also in charge of cleaning the pottery every day.

Ron is in real estate and can move lots of dirt with his pick.

Thea beside my wife in the orange was given this trip as a gift from her husband and has always wanted to go on an excavation.

James in the backrow is back for his second season and knows exactly which stone to remove and which rock to leave. 

Mary is in the back row in the middle and the sister to our photographer but Mike did not know she was coming and they kept it as a surprise. 

Beside me is my wife who has been excavating with us now for six seasons. Yes of course we are wearing our Tilley hats!!

Everyone is doing an amazing job at moving dirt and trimming baulks.
