A small find

All finds have been washed and numbered, we finished today. This worked out well because Don starts school tomorrow. While numbering finds, I found a piece of pot with a seal stamped on it. It had been missed by Elli, the archeologist in charge when he first went through the finds. I showed it to him, he was real excited, turns out that the seal is from the middle bronze age (2000 BC to 1550 BC). This means the pottery this shard is from, was made before the Exodus from Egypt!!! Very exciting!!! Some of these very old pieces of pottery have fingerprints baked into them from the craftsman who made them. Something about seeing and touching those finger prints and handling things that were made 3000 and 4000 years ago amazes me. 

More later.....
