A Nice Pair

Nestled in the corner on a floor from the end of the 8th century BCE are two objects, a basalt mortar and a clay juglet.

Mortar & Juglet

Both of these items are whole and in perfect state of preservation.  Lying under the destruction, they did not see the light of day for about 2716 years until we recovered them.

Here they are from a slightly different angle.  Faith Huh (C’16) prepared them for the photo.
