Greek Pottery in Ashkelon

The kids in my class love reading Percy Jackson and want to learn more about Greek mythology and history, so they always tell me what they find as they do more research. Because of this, I was very excited to speak with one of our specialists this week, Dr. Becky Martin. She is here studying Greek pottery and how it shows trade throughout Israel and I asked her if there were any pieces that showed the Greek gods. Watch below as her and Jen explain the different types of Greek pottery and show us what we have found so far on the dig! You can also head over to our modules page to learn more about making your own Greek-style pottery at home.

Also - we are one week out from the end of the dig! If there is anything that you want to see as we finish up or have any questions, please email me ( and I will have one of our specialists film a video to answer you.
