Backlog 2: On finding wood in the desert, posted elsewhere

January 16, 2015

Last year I received a grant from the Palestine Exploration Fund to analyze the rather large amounts of charcoal our project has found at the Islamic period copper smelting sites we’ve excavated, primarily Khirbat Nuqayb al-Asaymir and Khirbat Faynan. I’ve been meaning, for quite a while now, to write up a post for the PEF Blog — which is, incidentally, always an interesting read — with some updates on what we’ve learned so far about charcoal provisioning in Faynan. I’ve actually, finally, managed to do that, and there’s now a short post on the PEF Blog summarizing our preliminary results and (tentative) conclusions. You should go check it out!
