Excavating "David's Palace:" The Volunteers' View
The Edmond Sun has a brief article on three local college students who spent five months excavating the so-called "palace of David" in Jerusalem. Much of the article is not new to those following the story, but some information that I haven't seen elsewhere is the fact that phase 3 of the project will begin this summer, and only 20% of the excavation is considered complete. Apparently the dig will continue to the west of the present area, if the comment about moving "inland" is any indication. Mention is made again of a wall that is 7 meters thick and 20 meters long.
