Friday update

From Dr Carol Redmount of the El Hibeh Excavation team:

Friday update, March 30, 2012.

Not a great deal to report this week. At Ihnasya we continue to study pottery and small finds from our previous excavations at Hibeh. Again we wish to thank the SCA for permission to undertake this work. We continue to work to raise the profile, nationally and internationally, of looting at Hibeh and elsewhere and again we thank you for all your support. Alas, Hibeh still has no security, and we must continue our efforts until the site is protected. Thank you all again, and I hope I will have more to tell you next Friday.
