Jaw Bone

Dig this jaw Bone!Cool

Netta the anthropologist on the dig is holding a jaw bone from the tomb we were excavating. She extracted a molar from it to send to the lab and get DNA for study.
The rest of that skull can be seen in the blue tub. We later glued it back together. So cool!  Cool

Two Faces

Ashkelon Dig

This is one a many bones I excavated at the Canaanite tombs in Ashkelon. He had a nice smile and not one cavity in it.
The hotel in the back ground is where the dig team lived for seven weeks.
