The cardboard boxes we use to bring pottery and bones back from the dig are called "flats" and in this picture we have some flats containg pottery. Attached to each flat is a tag that tells where all the pieces of pottery come from and who excavated it.

This pottery is sitting on the sorting tables so it has been cleaned and is ready for sorting and clarification. Some will go to the Harvard University Lab in Ashkelon for study by PhD. students and some will go to Israeli museums and some will be discarded.
