An emergency excavation was underway Thursday to save a giant earthenware pot dating back to Byzantine times uncovered on a beach, after a rainstorm that walloped Israel Wednesday revealed several historic artifacts at a dig site.The pot was spotted by park rangers in the Gan Yavne archaeological site, located within the Palmahim Beach national park, 15 kilometers south of Tel Aviv, as high winds and crashing waves lashed the site Wednesday, stripping away layers of dirt and uncovering ancient vessels.An unassuming coffee pot beat its estimate by nearly 140 times at auction last week A small porcelain coffee pot, expected to fetch just £300 at auction last Saturday, blasted through its original estimate to achieve an astonishing £41,900.The pot, which was sent to the Tunbridge Wells & Hastings auction house in a box of mixed Chinese porcelain, was spotted by senior valuer Tom Blest as being something out of the ordinary.“The team of excavators is made up of 17 archaeologists, including 11 Poles, five Kuwaitis from NCCAL and a US scholar,” Duweesh pointed out.He added that NCCAL is in consultation with the UN Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) to add Bahrah I Excavation Zone to the World Heritage List given its universal value and unique and exceptional significance to human civilization.The fingerprint was found on a piece of a broken clay pot dating from the Stone Age (8,700 BC to 2,000 BC) in the Bahrah I Excavation Zone in Subiyya, an official from the National Council for Culture, Arts and Letters (NCCAL) announced on Friday.
The only other known Worcester coffee pot dating from this era is in the V&A but is missing its lid.
Antiquities authority officials estimate the 1.5-meters-deep pot, or dolium, dates back to sometime between the 4th and 6th centuries AD, and was likely used as an underground storage space.
“The entire pot was installed beneath an ancient floor, with only the opening exposed above ground,” Yitzhak Marmelstein, director of the dig site said in a statement, also estimating many more storage pots will be discovered along the beach.
It’s time to speak out—er, so to speak—against the overuse of “speaks out.” When somebody truly speaks out, they are raising their voice above an oppressive institution, or taking a risk by speaking in opposition to something. But when somebody makes a statement about something that directly or indirectly concerns them, or shares an opinion, or simply chimes in on the news of the day, they are just speaking. This is a problem, and not just for nit-picky readers like myself.
Consider the very construct of the phrase: To speak . The speaking is an act against that containment; it takes courage. It seems clear that publications overuse "speaks out" because it inflates the importance of a story. It's as if we're justifying our having written these stories, or perhaps luring the reader in with promise of important speech the way CNN declares everything to be "breaking news." This isn’t fair to readers.
