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.
