Jodi Magness was thinking, last time I talked with her, of 100-year-old
parchments in young ceramic containers, Virgil, so your thinking is at
least coherent with hers. IŽd tend to doubt, though, that we can date the
pottery that precisely, and even if we could, certain types can remain in
use for up to a thousand years. In any event, those seeking to conceal
skins would probably have purchased local manufactures, no matter where the
skins came from. So the presense of local pottery in both sites would not
prove much of anything.
