Day 14

Archaeological Sifting, Hezekiah’s Tunnel and Jerusalem Markets

sunny 32 °C

A slower day today.

This morning we took part in an Archaeological Sifting exercise of dirt excavated from the Temple Mount. This was incredibly therapeutic and much more enjoyable than I had anticipated. It was also pretty significant in terms of the connection to the first century.

Following this, we headed to the City of David and walked through Hezekiah’s Tunnels to the Pool of Siloam. The water was refreshingly cool after the heat.

Ordering lunch without our guide Hanna, was going to be too challenging to avoid gluten, garlic and onion, so I opted for potato chips and some chocolate with a cup of tea.

A walk into the markets was just crazy...people everywhere, but I enjoyed being out in the sun and fresh air.

That is about all from me today.
