At the end of our third week, we can show some results.

Tim, who is in charge of the pottery reconstruction process, is proudly holding a partially reconstructed four-handled, lmlk-type storage jar.  You can see how intricate the job is, but looking at it from  another (inside) angle you might get more impressed.

There are a few more pieces that belong to this jar; however, the problem is to find the place where they can be attached safely.

One of the vessels presently under reconstruction is a wide-mouth cooking pot.  The difficulty is in the make-up of the vessel that is very brittle and hard to glue together.

Cynthia is working on it with much patience.


The collection we are working on includes all sorts of domestic vessels.  Here is a bowl held by Timothy while it is drying and waiting for further reconstruction.
