One of the questions most frequently asked me since my return from Heshbon has been "What did you find?" The questioner, of course, refers to "objects," even though he may not use the word. He probably expects to hear that valuable hoards of jewelry or coins have been unearthed, or that inscriptions or manuscripts rich in historical information have been discovered. If such are the questioner's expectations, he may be somewhat disappointed, since at most Near Eastern archeological sites, inscriptions are rarities and objects made of precious metals are seldom found.
