Wrapping up at Umm el-Jimal

The Umm el-Jimal Project team is midway through its third week, after which the Calvin students will leave. Some of the things that were accomplished are the writing of a tour pamphlet for future visitors to use, the mapping of House XVII-XVIII, a preservation proposal to be carried out by a working team this summer, The discovery of several new features at House XVII-XVIII, the filming of several ethnographic vignettes from local citizens, and much more!
