Pottery Restoration Progress

Posted on

Over the last couple of months, Jeremy has been hard at work restoring pottery from Area B. In the past we have reported about finding large amounts of Canaanite local wares and imported Cypriot vessels of various forms and types in Area B. Now we can begin to see what these vessels would have looked like before their destruction. Here are some results of his work. Great work Jeremy!

    I think this would be the neat part of the lab work. Working on a 3-D puzzle.

    The cup and saucer fragment is most probably the one that I discovered in 2012 season. LOL
