First Look: New Archaeological Find at Tel Shiloh

MK Tzachi Hanegbi visited Tel Shiloh today and was shown a new find:

What is it?

It's a flask for liquids.  A canteen / water bottle.

Who made it?

A Canaanite.


About 3700 years ago, or maybe a bit less.

One side was smashed, accidentally, but can be repaired.

Two series of three concentric brown circles.

That's all the details at present.

I saw it two months ago with Eve Harow, friend and fellow lover-of the-Land,and we were stupendisized.
