David Connolly V-log: Building on Tombs

In the second day of the Jaresh survey, tombs are the focus. David’s team is attempting to survey endangered tombs in the area. Building over underground tombs is a common practice in the area, with occupants sometimes using the tombs as basements. Building on these tombs sometimes causes them to collapse, making these surveys and documentation efforts even more critical.

This installment also includes an interview with a volunteer archaeologist who comes to the survey with her husband.

David winds up his post down the rabbit hole in a “hot and bothered” state.
