ABSTRACT
A rare lead seal of the shipping company Austrian Lloyd was found during salvage excavations at the center of Jaffa. The seal is dated to the turn of the 20th century, a time of fundamental changes in Jaffa affecting a wide range of fields, from city planning, architecture and infrastructure to economy, politics and demography. The seal is a modest yet meaningful testimony to the role of commercial firms in the growing European involvement in Ottoman provinces during that time. It also reflects the contribution of archaeology to the study of relatively recent periods often ignored in traditional research.
