Temple Mount Bell and Gath Altar

With Prof. Keith Schoville

Major finds of the 2011 excavation season include a two-horned altar from Tel es-Safi, the Philistine city of Gath, and a tiny bell possibly from the hem of a priest's garment, in Jerusalem. The bell was found under the road that ran along the western wall of the Temple Mount, near Robinson's Arch.
