UW student archaeologists wind up summer at Tel Dor site

Students carefully excavate a complete vessel — this time, a Roman period juglet, possibly an oil container. After excavation, the soil in the interior of the vessel is sent for soil analysis at the Weizmann Institute in Israel. This analysis is then able to reveal the original contents of the vessel at the UW's Tel Dor archaeological site.

Scenes from the summer 2013 at the UW Tel Dor Archeological Excavation and Field School.
