Safi beer jug in BAS article about ancient beer…

A short article just appeared on the online “Biblical History Daily” of the Biblical Archaeology Society, dealing with recently published evidence of beer from Chalcolithic Tel Tsaf and Peqiin. As one of the illustrations for this article, they put in a picture of a Philistine “beer jug” from Tell es-Safi/Gath (held in my hands), taken when we had the massive press conference about the ancient yeast from various sites (see here). Unfortunately, the caption of the photo said that it is a “Bronze Age beer jug” – while it is from the Iron Age IIA (ca. late 9th cent. BCE).

It’s the details that count…:-)
