Week 2, Day 1: Tell es-Safi/Gath

Today was a pretty exciting day in the early Philistine Area, Area A2.

These are two of three Philistine bowls excavated at the north end of our area. They were found under last year's surface of hydraulic plaster (soon to be published in the Journal of Archaeological Science).

Sarah (pictured) and Sharon found the 3 Iron Age bowls and we are hoping for big things tomorrow!

More of our "sacrificed" young goat in a pit was excavated by Liora, our faunal specialist, with assistance from my student Amanda.

This nice rim sherd for a Philistine, Mycenaean style deep bowl came up in one of our pottery bags.
