What It Was

In yesterday's post I had a picture of the Greek vase as I first found it in the ground. Only the round part was sticking up and could have been anything. Here is how it looked when after I excavated it and cleaned it up. In this picture the jug is ready for display.

The tag attached tells future archaeologist where and when it was excavated and also has my name on it as the one who excavated it. They will be able to consult the dig report and see the site map of the exact place where I found it. What joy to discover something like this that was buried with its owner some three thousand five hundred years ago! 

I really need to get back to a dig.
