Megiddo, Day 13

Computer is running out of battery and I lent my converter to Melissa. Norma didn’t let us break the rock today – maybe tomorrow. Finished digging the square, though, and made sandbag steps to get out.

No lectures today. Philippe’s lecture on astragals and gaming was yeterday – he thinks the book of Jonah is just a metaphor for a game of senet, which is interesting. I would have liked to learn how to play, though, but I guess you can’t fit play time into an hour-long lecture covering a retranslation of an entire book of the Bible.
