Just a quick update on some very nice finds from the last few days:
Area A: Louise and her team have pulled out a extraordinary electrum crescent-shaped pendant (LB/Iron I) and fragments of a very nice Myc IIIB pyxis
Diana and her team are working in the 9th cent. destruction level and have discovered a large group of vessels, some loomweights, etc.
Area D: Joe and his team are finding a “ton” of finds form the destruction level, including several complete vessels (including a really nice “Akhziv ware” juglet) and parts of a food preparation area with a collection of 8 or so grinding stones.
Area E: Itzik and his team have found a small copper point from the EB levels and gamepiece.
Area F: Jeff is excavating several Iron Age levels, the MB fortification and the Crusader tower and perhaps, may have evidence of the 8th cent. earthquake mentioned in the book of Amos!!!
Area G: They’ve found bedrock!!
Area P: Rona and her team are excavating a great early Iron I level, with the granary already mentioned a various other architectural and other finds.
That’s it for now!
