As you may know, I am working at a salvage excavation in Jerusalem these days.
The present site has at least twenty shaft tombs in which the Canaanites buried their dead some 4,000 years ago, in the Middle Bronze Age.
Today's best find, to my eyes, was this unusual vessel.
It was down in the burial cave at the end of this shaft.
Here our one Bedouin worker is being pulled out, no ladder!
Behind him is Haj. I don't know his name because all the workers (Moslems) simply call him Haj. It is the title of respect given to a pilgrim after he has made the pilgrimage to Mecca.
