Turning back the hands of time

In Area Q we have turned back the hands of time. Our area has been untouched since the University of Chicago exposed Stratum III — the Neo-Assyrian level — and then ceased excavating here after 1926. Below are 1) a photograph taken by Chicago in 1926; 2-3) our area as of June 14th 2008, before excavation; and 4) our area as of June 20th 2008, when we had almost finished re-exposing the remains first uncovered by Chicago.
