Ramat Rahel VI: The Renewed Excavations by the Tel Aviv-Heidelberg Expedition (2005-2010). The Babylonian-Persian Pit (Hardback)

Pre-order for despatch on publication.


This is part of a three-volume final report of the renewed excavations at Ramat Rahel by the Tel Aviv-Heidelberg Expedition (2005 2010). It presents the finds from the Babylonian-Persian pit, one of the most dramatic find-spots at Ramat Rahel. The pit yielded a rich assemblage of pottery vessels and yhwd, lion, and sixth-century "private" stamp impressions, including, for the first time, complete restored stamped jars, jars bearing two handles stamped with different yhwd impressions, and jars bearing both lion and "private" stamp impressions on their bodies. Residue analysis was conducted on many of the vessels excavated from the pit to analyze their contents, yielding surprising results. The finds contribute to our understanding of the pottery of the Babylonian and early Persian periods (6th 5th centuries BCE) and to the study of the development of the stamped-jar administration in the province of Yehud under Babylonian and Persian rule.
