Excavation began 2003/2006Edit

According to Hadashot Arkheologiyot – Excavations and Surveys in Israel Volume 126 Year 2014 excavation began at the En Esur site in 2006 (The site of ‘En Esur was previously excavated in eight areas over the course of three seasons (Yannai 2006; Fig. 1:A–H)), but it seems, confirmed by HA-ESI Volume 131 Year 2019, that excavations could have begun as early as 2003. comrade waddie96 ★ (talk) 16:04, 8 October 2019 (UTC)

Interesting and great catch — I'll try to add some text to accommodate what you've found — waddie96 let me know what you think? -Darouet (talk) 17:54, 8 October 2019 (UTC)
@Waddie96: how is this [1] ? Darouet (talk) 18:00, 8 October 2019 (UTC)

Drop to "C" class?Edit

Readers are left wanting after reading this, as I was. I'm Caker18 ! I edit Wikipedia sparingly. (talk) 17:31, 9 October 2019 (UTC)

I agree, dropped to C class. comrade waddie96 ★ (talk) 07:54, 10 October 2019 (UTC)
This is a silly thing to edit war about, because the ratings really don't matter all that much – but I have done several thousand of these over the years, particularly on archaeology topics.
What "obvious omissions or inaccuracies" do you feel there are in this article? I would be happy to add material to cover them. – Joe (talk) 08:19, 10 October 2019 (UTC)
Apologies, I didn't see that the class has been changed before. I suggest leaving the article without a class until consensus is reached as to what the class should be. comrade waddie96 ★ (talk) 08:48, 10 October 2019 (UTC)

Map of the siteEdit

I've created a draft map of the site:

 
Draft Map of En Esur

Sadly I have no access to a proper computer with Adobe Illustrator or Photoshop, so I can't create a decent map. Is there anyone who can transform this draft into a better-looking map?--Bolter21 (talk to me) 16:03, 12 October 2019 (UTC)

@Bolter21: I can take a stab at it. What's the source? – Joe (talk) 16:16, 12 October 2019 (UTC)
Several. I used satellite data from GovMap, a map made by the Israel Antiquities Authority which appears here and this map.--Bolter21 (talk to me) 16:29, 12 October 2019 (UTC)
Thanks! I've added one to the article. – Joe (talk) 18:14, 13 October 2019 (UTC)
I must say it is beautiful. I would suggest changing the color of the springs to something like green.--Bolter21 (talk to me) 18:31, 13 October 2019 (UTC)
