These archaeological finds in Judea and Samaria “testify to the rich Jewish history of the area,” says head of the Civil Administration’s archaeological unit.
In an archaeological dig in the ancient city of Beit El in Samaria, the Civil Administration has uncovered dozens of ceramic jars and clay objects dating back to the Second Temple period.
This latest discovery was made at a water hole believed to be part of a residential Jewish neighborhood roughly 2,000 years ago.
“The archaeological finds that have been unearthed testify to the rich Jewish history of the area and contribute greatly to historical research,” said Hanania Hizmi, head of the Civil Administration’s archaeological unit.
