2016 Field Season Day Five

The inventory of the containers in the Pottery Compound has revealed some fantastic objects. In one container, volunteers found boxes of frescos excavated from the church near the Jerusalem Gate. The church was excavated in 1985 and the collected material culture, fresco fragments included, put into storage. This week, Angie started cleaning the fragments, one piece of which is shown below.
