Week 2, Day 4: Tell es-Safi/Gath
Although yesterday was rather slow, digging rubbish fill in several areas, we had a big day today. polyvinyl impressions taken of our chisel marks to be studied under an electron microscope in Canada,
In Sharon's square, in fill, perhaps in a courtyard, we found a sealing (aka bulla) but with no image or inscription, a gold earring, and a silver bead.
In Jo's area, we finished the uncovering of our phytolith surface.
While digging yet another rubbish deposit in Dean's area, we found a "celebrity" sherd that was featured in the BBC documentary being filmed on the Bible and a very nice, but broken flint knife.
Tomorrow, the ambassador!
