Basering Ware "Bilbil" jug. known for its dark color, very fine ware with a metallic ring to it, and shape (similar to poppy flower and thought to have possibly held opium) and thin neck, so when poured from, it makes the sound "bilbil".

    Hello,
    I’ve enjoyed the posts and photos on your blog very much.

    I’m intrigued about the ‘Lady of Burna’. Where was she found? Have you found any other figurine fragments?

    Thanks,
    Victoria

    There are so many artifacts, the pictures actually get a little overwhelming, but I LOVE it!!

    I find the aerial photography of the excavation pits really intriguing. You see both the beginnings of the underground structures, and also the logic of the dig. Keep these up!
