Very Cool Map of Features Around the Tell

Posted on

In September, a team from the CAVE RESEARCH UNIT conducted a survey around Tel Burna, mapping the different features around the site, including caves, agricultural installations and other features, which can help in numerous ways, including planning of future excavation projects and also understanding the exploitation of the landscape by the inhabitants of the city.  Here is a nice map showing some of those features.

    This IS cool. What were the boundaries of the survey? How are these features dated as being used in the same time the city was occupied?

    Since I don’t have academic training archaeology, I don’t know what a “cupmark” or “cleaving channel” is…?? Anyway, I’d love to walk around and look at some of these things next time!
