Back in the Agora Storage Rooms

Okay, I'm back now I think. I've spent the last few days either moping in bed, writing a paper, or reading feel-good books like Harry Potter. But we have some interesting things to look forward to this week, like Eretria. Plus I have a new theme to introduce to the blog in a few days, once it's been cooked up properly and ready to go. So let the archaeological fun resume.

Storage amphorae in the store rooms of the Agora excavations.

John Camp shows some osteological evidence. Every one of those wooden drawers represents a layer excavated by the Agora diggers since the 1930s, each full of context pottery to help future generations re-date the material accurately.
