Chapter Summary

The number of objects and samples reported from late Byzantine and Early Islamic sites is few when compared with the number studied in final reports of Iron Age sites. Although the repertoire of artefacts from Building 600 is limited, it is important to begin the process of not only identifying these finds, but establishing their classes, types, and sub-types. The principal classes recovered from Building 600 include personal possessions, tools of daily life, natural resources, and luxury items. A division of finds between the Department of Antiquities and the Tall Jawa Project was held at the end of each season, and the most complete objects (artefacts) were selected by the Department of Antiquities for the National Museum in 'Amman. The remaining artefacts, along with broken objects, geological samples, and faunal material, were transferred on permanent loan to Wilfrid Laurier University and are housed in the Near Eastern Archaeology Laboratory.
