Some Small Things We Found

Not everything we found was a huge stone building block. Some were rather small.

Here are a few of the small finds that include coins, nails, really small clay lamps and clay markers.
Some of these things are easy to miss when you are digging in the dirt. No telling how many like these were tossed in the goffa and then in the dumping area. Coins are often green or grey and blend in with the dirt. I once found a very small clay marker that was used for counting. It was perfectly round and thicker than a coin and I almost missed it.

How I do love archaeology excavation.
