Going Down

“Going down” is the motto of every excavation and we are not different.

Look at the bin in this picture.  It is gone.  And underneath lies a floor with a smashed cooking pot and other ceramics.  You’ll see it tomorrow.

While the bin is gone, the probe on the right between the upright pillar (top) and the large stone (middle), which might be a pillar base, is yielding remains suggesting that another floor lies below.  This one would date to a somewhat earlier time in the 8th century BCE.

Evidence from the adjacent area (A7) suggests that pottery making might have taken place there.  We found large amounts of processed clay, parts of ovens, and much ash all of which can be related to pottery making.

Upon the news, the group jumped from joy.
