One of things I love most about my job is the variety of objects I get to work with. Just two weeks ago, I was rehousing large (and extremely heavy) vessels, and last week I photographed small ceramic fragments. Shown here are just a few of the fragments I photographed. Although small in size, they are just as important as our larger objects in helping us understand and appreciate the ancient world.
