Stored Artifacts
Stored Artifacts

They’ve stopped excavating because there’s so much to do with what they already have .  There were open storerooms, piled with hundreds (thousands?) of items, ranging, as you see here, from statuary to containers for oil, wine, grain…

It was a thriving, complex society of about 20,000.  And we trample through in wonder, trying to maintain a sense of respect for what seemed to me to be a huge grave site, all the while marveling at craftsmanship, engineering, grandeur, and artistry.  It was a moving set of experiences to set the stage for the beginning of the trip.
