Today I am sharing another great video from Paula, our zooarchaeologist.  This video looks at the variety of bone dolls that have been found here in Ashkelon.

Junior Archaeology Assignment: Look around your bedroom and other places you keep your toys. Do you have any toys that are carved? They probably won't be carved out of bone, but do you have some that are carved wood?  Draw those toys in your log book. If you want to send me a photo at I would love to see them!


Question of the day: Who do you think these dolls were for? Did children play with them or were they for adults and decoration in the home? If they were for children, what sorts of things do you think they did with the dolls?
