Apollonia Arsuf Day 4

Day 4 is when the archaeology really begins to get complex. We've confirmed that the large slanted wall is all one connecting structure sitting ontop of the crusader tower walls, and that the plaster walls are possibly islamic and later in origin.

Ive opened up another section to better understand the towers relationship to the later buildings from another locus and will be focusing my efforts to this area on friday.

Another lamp was also discovered today, along with mass amounts of pottery sherds and handles. Both of which are crusader in origin.


  1. Would love to see some photos of the finds.

  2. What a splendid thing to be excavating!
