Temple Mount SIFTING Project GALLERY
Greg volunteered at the Temple Mount Sifting Project in 2008 and 2009. Here he learned Wet-Sifting techniques and secondary artifact recovery. The materials sifted were dumped in the Kidron Valley by the illegal 1999 creation of the new Al-Marwani Mosque on the Temple Mount (formally called Solomon’s Stables).
