The cistern

We finished the excavation in the cistern.
We could revealed only a part of the west wall of it. So the dimensions of it are unknown yet.

Some aligned huge pots

We found some huge pots in the north end of the excavation in 2008 and 2009.
We filled them up with lumps of inflated clay to prevent from its collapsing.

Through this work we could measure the capacity of each of them also.
The average capacity of them is about 1,500 liters.
