Strata: Cartoon Caption Contest

“I agree—It looked a lot more glamorous in BAR’s Dig issue!”

—Martin Bowers, Lexington, South Carolina

Thank you to all those who submitted caption entries for our May/June 2016 cartoon (above), based on Ecclesiastes 10:8:

“Whoever digs a pit will fall into it, and whoever breaks through a wall will be bitten by a snake.”

We are pleased to congratulate Martin Bowers of Lexington, South Carolina, who wrote the winning caption, and our runners-up:

“Yes, but did you find more scrolls?”

—David Burroughs, Chula Vista, California

“On the positive side, anything you find down there will be considered provenanced!”

—Larry Love, Vero Beach, Florida
