    Just “discovered” this video today! Thank you Dr. Mazar and crew for keeping us updated on the progress of the dig. It is very interesting watching the actual work going on and to see history coming to light! Please keep those videos coming!!

    Thank you Dr Mazar, for helping us to more readily visualise some of the specifics of the dig and to help us feel included. We’re so excited to see the updates on the website and our children can’t wait to see the treasures that are unearthed.

    Nick… great update. Its wonderful to see first hand the dig site and listen to Dr. Mazar’s excitement about discovering the history of the cave and the Ophel. Thank you for the video.

      Glad you enjoyed the video! However, it was actually filmed and edited by Gino Chi–so he should get the credit. Stay tuned for some soon-coming photos!
