Day four in Jerusalem

What a fantastic day we r having! We just finished two hours at the Temple Mount archeology dig. We were sifting thru the rubble that was dumped by the Muslims in digging under the Temple Mount. Artifacts have been found as far back as the time of the first temple. Our group found pottery pieces from the first temple period. Our guide pointed out that everything we touched was covered in gray ash. This ash was left from the burning of the first and second temples! What N awesome
feeling to know we were actually touching the remains of the temple! We will definitely return again next year. This afternoon we will visit the garden tomb.
Tomorrow we tour the Old City. David & Jean
