Pool Party and finds?


We have previously written about what looked like a fountain in the northern part of our excavation area.  With today’s work, we can now say that the fountain is part of the water features of a small pool (1.67×1.67m).  It is one of now two plastered pools in this part of the dig and may suggest that we have come upon a private bathing facility.  We have not reached the bottom of the pool, yet.  But some of the team have their water toys at the ready.

Sometimes on a dig we find items of unexpected beauty.  Other times, we find unexpected items.  Here, Darryl unearths a buried commercial food container (thanks, IDF).
