Week 2 – Day 3

Posted on Updated on

We had a lot of good progress today. We are in the full swing of things now – and the days seem to fly by quickly in the field.

In Area A2 – several complete vessels are appearing and the remains of a cow were excavated.

In Area B2 – Aharon’s group is right on top of the Iron I/II destruction after removing an enormous amount of rubble. Lots of vessels are appearing with ash and other finds. Special shout out to Jared, Caroline, Stahlie, and Luke for getting through a lot of fill in a very short time! We wish they were staying for two more weeks 🙂

In Area G – it is very clear now that we have at least two phases in the area of the presumed gate – the earlier phase is beginning to appear and it looks quite impressive. Gil also showed off his skills as a juggler! (See video below)

Yesterday afternoon – Aren Maeir gave an interesting lecture on the always impressive finds from Tell es-Safi/Gath and this afternoon – Jane will be lecturing on animal bones and archaeology this afternoon.

We also had a very special visitor during pottery reading – who employed a special technique of a taste test for dating the pottery (see pictured below).

第二周  第三天

今天我们有很棒的进度!一切都正如火如荼的进行中,以至于让我们觉得在现场的时间过得飞快。

A2区:
几件完整的陶器已经露出,另外团队发现牛的骨骸,并已挖掘出土。

B2区:
在移除大量的落石、瓦砾后,Aharon的团队已经接触到铁器一期/二期的破坏层,许多伴随着灰碳的陶器与其他的发现已经露出。特别为团队成员喝采,分别是:Jared,Caroline,Stahlie与Luke,他们在短短的时间内,就已经移除堆积层!真希望他们可以再多待两周。

G区:
现在在本区,我们已经很清楚地知道在假定的城门位置上,至少有两个不同时期的建筑构造堆叠在一起。而较早期的建筑构造已经开始露出,并看起来相当巨大。附带一提,团队成员:Gil也在挖掘过程中,展现了他的杂耍技巧(请见下方影片)。

昨天下午,Prof. Seen Maeir带来一场非常有趣的课程,是关于来自tel es-Safi/Gath令人印象深刻的发现。今天下午,团队成员:Jane将向我们介绍动物考古学。
