    I have just returned to the USA from Israel where I am an archaeologist on staff at the excavations at Tel Gezer. My dig ended on July 19 and I had time to remain in Israel for a few weeks afterward. I had the good fortune to visit the Temple Mount Salvage Project and to meet the staff and volunteers who have been dedicating their time and efforts to this cause. I managed to come to the project 3 days and to participate in the project. All the work I did was extremely important and I felt a part of the project from all the staff there, as well as being welcomed for my time. I am a coin specialist and it was my delight to find a coin during my third day at the project. The coin appeared to be a Hellenistic Seleucid coin, probably 2nd-1st century BCE and prior to the destruction of the 2nd Temple though it did need extensive cleaning for identification. I will return to help at the project when I am in Israel again as this is one of the most important projects I have been attached to, as well as one of the most fullfilling.
