Interesting Comparison

While the group is on a trip, no work is done thus nothing new to report from the field.  But

this is an opportunity to look at one of the finds we made this summer and compare it to a similar object we found a few years ago at the other end of Field V.  While the new find (on the right) still needs some cleaning, it can be seen that it belongs to the same artistic and production traditions.  Half a palette, similar to the one on the left, was discovered in Field III many years ago.

As I suggested earlier (see June 15, 2016), Tell Halif must have had trade relations with the coastal plain, especially the Phoenician part of it, where these palettes originated.
