Pottery Baskets

Pottery pails, tb110704006

If you've ever thought it strange that they call them “pottery baskets” when they’re really just plastic buckets, the photo below may help.

Tell Beit Mirsim, pottery baskets, mat05733

This photo was taken in the first season of William F. Albright’s excavation of Tell Beit Mirsim (1926).  It is one of 25 photos taken at the site included in the newly published Southern Palestine volume of The American Colony and Eric Matson Collection (originally Library of Congress, LC-matpc-05733).
