Quiz (in the spirit of Purim)

Here is a archaeological quiz, in the spirit of Purim:

What site in the eastern Mediterranean does this picture hint to?

Pile of chocolate chip cookies

A free Safi T-shirt to the person who guesses correctly within the next 24 hours!

(those who have already heard the answer cannot participate…)

UPDATE: one of those who knew the answer posted the answer without noticing my comment in the parentheses, but the answer was deleted – so the quiz is still open!

Second update and hint: It’s a site which some suggest is connected to the Sea Peoples phenomenon…

    If you had asked what site in America, I would say Site 13 in Utah (near Canyon Lands National Park) since the earliest traces of chocolate were discovered there in pottery – 770 AD. :)

      Igor – you are right!!! :-)
      This is a “Pile of cookies no creamos”, or Pyla-Kokkinokremos, the well-known LC IIIA site, excavated and published by Karageorghis and Demas (1984)!!
      And now Igor – write to me an email with your address (and shirt size!) – and we’ll send you a shirt !!
