More of D3, Jason' area.  This part had lots and lots of "lamelekh" (royal) stamped jar handles that date to the 7th century BCE.  This is also where Sue Moore found her stand, for which see earlier post.

Jason in his area; here is a pavement that was thought to be Judahite, but was just now found to be Roman-era or later.

Roman or Byzantine-era mosaic floor discovered last week.  None of us are working in that part of the dig, but it's nice anyway.
