Lemba and Edgar Peltenberg

I visited the Chalcolithic site of Lemba today – both the site and the experimental village. Very interesting site – even if it is from the Protohistoric periods (:-).

In light of the fact that Prof. Edgar Peltenburg, excavator of this site, passed away last week, it was a nice way to pay tribute to one of the more important near eastern archaeologists of this generation. May he rest in peace!
