1,000-year-old chicken egg, one of the oldest ever, found in Israel

Recommended Posts

A complete chicken egg dating back 1,000 years has been unearthed in Yavne, a town in central Israel, the Antiquities Authority announced on Wednesday.

“This is a very rare find, in Israel and the world,” said Dr. Lee Perry Gal of the IAA, a leading expert on poultry in the ancient world. “Eggshell fragments are always interesting to find in excavations, but they are relatively common. A complete egg is really unique.”

The complete egg was unearthed in a vast industrial complex dating to the Byzantine period (4th-7th centuries CE). Within the site, the archaeologists found a cesspit from the Islamic period, and to their surprise they spotted an unusual object inside.

If they could only find the chicken, they may have cracked one of the world's oldest mysteries.
