Apollonia Arsuf Day 10

It was our last day of excavating and we managed to finish closure of our area. As a last minute dash, we extended the north west quadrant and traced part of the interior city wall to an easterly direction. We unearthed several pieces of crusader pottery along with many pieces of Byzantine that was displaced out of context.

For the remainder of the day, we spent the time cleaning area L and sectioning trench walls to ensure that the surveyors could create accurate plans and drawings. 

At last minute, we had an interesting discovery of a lead seal from a sectioned wall. This is extremely exciting as any markings on the seal may have the potential of associating a particular historical figure.

A big thanks to all the team that supported and ran the excavation, in particular, Ilan, Neer and Dan.. 

Here's to Apollonia 2010...
