    Quite literally, you understand. A 15mm scale Iron Age Near Eastern butchery, based very loosely on archeology in Ashkelon. The first building of an intended settlement for my Biblical gaming. Based on a Sarissa Terrain Tile. Building scratch built from 2mm mdf. Baskets and jars from Baueda, biggest pot and fence from Crom’s Anvil, sheep from Irregular and butchers (slightly) converted from Xyston Athenian rowers.

    That is excellent.
    I will steal that idea!

    @Geof Downton: do you have a source (magazine, book, link?)

    @Mike: YES!

    I’m afraid it’s in the online archive of the Biblical Archaeology Society, to which you have to subscribe for access.

    Update. Found this,

    https://www.academia.edu/attachments/50233060/download_file?st=MTU3MzcwNzY4NSw3Ny4xMDEuMTY5LjY3&s=profile

    …which, despite the title, seems to be the full report of Ashkelon at its destruction by Nebuchadnezzar in 604 bce.

     

    You’ll have to sign up to read/download it, but it won’t cost money.

    …and thus ’Shaun’s Historical Adventures’ ended Nick Park’s career.

    Nice work & interesting article.

    Not fair! If I had thought about Shaun I would never have started, I had enough trouble as a veggie!

     

    But thanks anyhow!

    Fantastic results!

    Also inspiring me to think about possible projects for my Sumerians.

    The Sumerians were, I believe, fond of beer…

    That’s great! Love it when people add-in non-military subjects to their wargames projects.

    I notice a number of the games at conventions are doing it too.

    As a fellow vegetarian my Early Bronze Age meat is left on the hoof, so far, but I may be inspired to have my MAR.TU butcher a purloined cow, or similar.

    Thanks, but I’m not convinced that anything I do really relates to “gaming”. If there had been railways in 1000 bce I’d just as likely be playing with a train set as toy soldiers.

    Thanks also to messrs. Cooke and Flagg, and anybody else from the past or future who says nice things about my stuff!

    More tiny buildings coming soon…
