Over the next weeks, we will start adding materials for the 2013 season to the excavation report linked above. However, in the midst of the 2013 season, we discovered a error when we mapped the squares using the new north/south system. So, in the excavation data, we will include updated materials from 2012. The text of this year’s report will discuss both seasons together.
