PaleoJudaica has kept track of all of these stories. For the Solomonic-era purple cloth from the Timna Valley excavation, see here and here. For the lucky half-face lamp, whose other half turned up in Hungary, see here, here, and here. For the Arbel amulet, see here. For the unbreached wall in Jerusalem, see here, here, and here. For the intact chicken egg (eggshell, really), see here. And for the silver shekel found in Jerusalem, see here.
I have collect PaleoJudaica links for the other stories in in this post on Christianity Today's 2021 top-10 biblical archaeology list and in this top-10 archaeology list by the Greek Reporter. I also linked to an excellent list of lists by the Bible Place Blog here.
And that, my dear readers, is 2021 for PaleoJudaica. 2022 is nearly upon us. Celebrate well and safely tonight.
