On June 16, our Holy Land Pilgrimage visited the Tel of Kedesh to tour a live dig where Emily had dug two years earlier with her Professor Andrea Berlin then of the University of Minnesota. Prof. Berlin graciously explained the Persian site to the 60 pilgrims with us. Her team had just started the season's dig the day prior to our visit and they were anticipating finding some Persian artifacts since they had at the end of last year's season found the walls of a Persian administrative building.
Well one week after our visit, the dig team found the largest gold coin ever found in Israel! Go to this news link for the full story! We were walking on gold and didn't know it!

Look who's standing on the biggest find of gold in Israel's history!
