Cool day at the lab!

Today we had a great day at the lab, and several very interesting things “popped up”!

First of all, we noticed that one of the basalt objects from Area D is made of a non-standard type of basalt – which we are now looking into.

Second, Linda Meiberg noticed a LB sherd with a very interesting design including several animals – some not that common – more information on this in the future…

And thirdly, while going over pottery from a few loci that we are preparing for publication in an article on Iron I feasting, I came upon some really nice sherds – including a fragment of an LB/Iron I beverage strainer – very appropriate for a feasting context!

Just another day on the chain gang… :-)
