Pottery Washing

We had pottery washing basic training today and then spent two hours washing pottery sherds that ranged from the Iron Age to the Persian Period. Our group washed several interesting pieces including a large piece of Iron Age jar, amphora toes, jar handles, a large tooth, and the first inscrition found in this dig. It was very cool to handle this pottery and feel a connection to the people who made it and used it and wrote on it thousands of years ago.
