Entro sera, il «Team Ruac», come Luc lo aveva battezzato, era al completo. L'ultimo ad arrivare era stato l'israeliano Zvi Alon che, dopo aver visto il proprio camper, si era lamentato perché non aveva bisogno di tutto quello spazio. Per l'occasione, e per volontà della ministra dei Beni Culturali, era presente anche il caporedattore delle pagine culturali di Le Monde. In cambio dell'esclusiva sull'inaugurazione degli scavi, l'editore del prestigioso quotidiano aveva acconsentito a pubblicare l'articolo soltanto dopo il nullaosta ministeriale.

Più avanti, giunsero a un punto in salita in cui la caverna si restringeva, per fortuna non tanto da costringerli a strisciare.
