Tools in Ashkelon

When working in Ashkelon, we have found a few things that I know I thought of when picturing archaeology-pottery and arrowheads. Pottery is something that we find every day, but arrowheads come along a lot less often. I know that my students enjoy finding arrowheads when they are hiking on vacation, but they are not the same as what we normally find here-ours are most often made of metal or bone (mainly because of the time periods we are excavating). One of our volunteers, Chris, actually makes his own stone arrowheads, though, and wanted to show me the process. Check out the video below, as well as our video later on in the week about bone tools that we have found in Ashkelon.
