We had a very busy day today – lots of finds – and lots of visitors…
Area A: Louise and her team took down an Iron IIA wall and revealed the Iron I wall beneath it, and are now pushing for the final probe into the early Iron I levels.
Area D: Amit and his team had quite a day. In the metallurgy area they found a large piece of a crucible, and in the gate area, various very interesting Iron I objects, including several very special cultic objects.
Area E: Several very interesting floors, features and installations were found – and in addition, two clay bulla, one with an imprinted design, were found!
Area F: The are reaching to the EB levels inside the wall, and some nice MB pottery (including Tell el-Yahudiyeh ware) was found in association with the MB glacis. In addition, Iron IIA, LB and MB are being excavated.
Area J: The EB wall is getting bigger and bigger…
Area K: Iron IIA destruction galore – and all kinds of very cool finds!
Area K2: It seems that the two levels of restorable pottery between two of the walls both date to the Iron IIA!
Here are some pictures:
