End of Week 4

Hard to believe but we are getting to the end of week 4.  As I promised yesterday, we removed the bin and found below a typical Iron Age II cooking pot lying in a context of ash that was probably the result of the open fire in which it was used.


We continued to explore the area between the two pillars in the same house.


In the lower left corner of the cut it is possible to discern a mortar only half of which is visible in this photo.  It is surrounded by loom weights some of which are complete.  Since this assembledge belongs to an earlier phase of occupation in this house the question is what was the reason for covering it and creating a new floor.


Further down (west) we are uncovering another room (see lower right) where much whole pottery, including two dipper juglets, was uncovered.  We plan on photographing it on Sunday.

So, in the meantime, have a good weekend.
