Weekend wandering

Weekends are a precious commodity when working an archaeological site. For some diggers, the weekend is a time to relax, rehydrate, and escape the sun. For others, it is a perfect opportunity to explore the country beyond the 5 x 5 meter square. For several summers, I had the pleasure of rambling with Matt Grey (now Professor of Ancient Scripture at BYU). On this day we hunted flints in the eastern desert of Jordan, not far from al-Harrana.
