Seems we just can't get enough of that Chalcolithic culture. On our Saturday off (July 28th), most of us hit the road for the site of Rogem Hiri (Hebrew) or Rujm el Hiri (Arabic). The site is located northeast of the Sea of Galilee. C, our field supervisor, has dug at the site before. This was great since, although the site is on the map, it is shown in the middle of nowhere. Luckily we got there without a misstep. After our adventures which included fording a stream and looking for cattle bones to study, we had a falafal and mezze lunch at a road side diner near the Sea of Galilee.
