Ancient mystery object

.
The thrill of discovery!
What will the mystery object turn out to be?

My colleagues here are freeing it from earth that covered it for some 4,000 years.
We excavated many such Canaanite shaft tombs at the Holyland site in Jerusalem.

I love watching shows on tv where they excavate old sites and discover the layers of civilisation that are beneath.

Everything you dig out is mystery object, so exciting. You never know what it will be. Ever found a paleolithic toilet brush??? Lol

My love of the old doesn't go back more than a couple of centuries, but every new discovery is interesting...
