We are moving forward in time again this week…on to the Iron Age I!

These storage jars are located in the southwest corner of the square between the perimeter wall and a low mudbrick “wall” running in an arch from the corner towards the middle of the square.

This quote is referring to several collared rim storage jars found in B6.  These remains account for the only pure Iron I level at the site.  This general setup, with storage jars located against the main perimeter wall, is paralleled at sites such as Tall al-Umayri and Shiloh.  A fairly unique beer strainer was found in the same locus as the storage jars.  There are not many published Iron I sites in Jordan, so hopefully this chapter will help expand the picture for the 12th century BCE.
