Remains of ancient city discovered in Israel

Recommended Posts

Still Waters

Israel's Antiquities Authority on Sunday said that researchers have discovered the remains of a large, 5,000-year-old city that sheds new light on experts' understanding of the period.

Calling it a "cosmopolitan and planned city," the authority said the early Bronze Age settlement covered 65 hectares (160 acres) and was home to about 6,000 people.

"In this city, we have a planned settlement with a whole net of streets and alleys and squares, and drainage installations, storage installation," said Yitzhak Paz, a director of excavation on behalf of the authority.

The city was discovered during preparations for a highway interchange project near Harish, a town some 50 kilometers (30 miles) north of Tel Aviv.

Israeli archaeologists "claim to" discover ancient city

 :lol:

 American Biblical "archaeologists?" say one thing. Israeli archaeologists say the opposite and now we have some American Evangelical Christians claiming Rabbis and Israeli archaeologists are lying or covering up "real" history. :lol:
