More people I know in the news
Ryan Byrne teaches archaeology at Rhodes College in Memphis. He was supervising all the pottery we found at Tel Dan. We had some good conversations about the legitimacy of a Solomonic gate at Hazor and the chances of the Angels and Mariners in the playoffs this year.

Ryan's hometown Memphis Commercial Appeal featured his version of the Tel Dan evacuation a couple of weeks ago. You can read the whole thing here.

"We had a nice vantage point," said Byrne, who returned to Memphis early last week.

"We were right next to the howitzers and had a nice view. You could see where the Israelis were shelling villages (in Lebanon) and you could see the Katyushas (Hezbollah rockets) going over.

"It's an interesting way to do archaeology. It's a loud way to do archaeology."

Also, Dr. Stone has a number of his photos posted now over on his blog, proof that I was indeed there.
