Saturday trip: Hazor and Nabretein

Today the dig team took a field trip to two sites in northern Galilee: Tel Hazor, a major biblical tel with extensive remains from the Bronze and Iron Age, and Nabretein, site of a Galilean type synagogue similar to the Huqoq synagogue. The trip was a welcome respite from the intense work this week! Here are some pictures from the day:
