i'm rich..... not

on friday, i was just minding my own business, digging in my square,

uncovering mud bricks

and philistine bichrome pottery sherds

when something shiny caught my eye

and i asked my area supervisor if it was anything special ... apparently i'm not familiar enough with gold jewelery to realize that ... i had just uncovered a 3,000 year old gold earing from the late bronze to early iron age.

if i find its missing pair, do you think i can keep it?

that's my birthday present, right? i know, I normally go for silver but I'll accept gold just this once
(remember - I have 2 ears so I'll need you to find the matching pair... not wanting to pull a Melissa from thirtysomething :))
