Israel

The city of Hebron has been added as a UNESCO World Heritage site which immediately sparked a conflict. The city lies on the West Bank but has Israeli settlers. The Palestine Authority applauded the decision but the Israeli Foreign Ministry blasted the decision, calling UNESCO a promoter of fake history.

An ancient wine press was discovered in Israel, dating from the Roman Empire. It was discovered in the desert of Southern Israel. A team from the Israel Antiquities Authority is examining the site.

Human remains were discovered in the excavation of Gezer, an ancient Canaanite city in central Israel. The remains were important due to the layer of ash on them which gave further evidence or the burning of the city by the Egyptians. Professor Steven Ortiz of the Tandy Institute for Archaeology at Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary was in charge of the dig with Dr. Sam Wolff from the Israel Antiquity Authority. Several artifacts that were discovered along with the remains were scarabs, cylinder seals, faience (blue pottery) and turquoise items, an Egyptian amulet and a cylindrical seal featuring a war scene along with the Canaanite god Reshef.

Excavations in the Shallalat Gardens, Alexandria, Egypt, discover an old carved tunnel. It is important due to its proximity to the Ptolemy’s royal residence, the rulers of Egypt for almost 300 years. Kalliopi Limneou-Papakosta has led the excavation for over 20 years and works with the Hellenic Research Institute of the Alexandrian Civilization, a nonprofit headed by her.
