I don't know about the seal, but the jar handles name Zif and 
Hebron, both known places from Judea.  The beautifully preserved
seal is one thing.  The jar handles are more puzzling, I think.  And if
this is an intermediary report of ongoing excavations, who knows
what else they will find there?  It is also nice to have such a clear 
photo of the seal/signet, better than some pictures in published 
reports (which are usually only black/white).
