New Archaeological Findings
A number of articles about archaeological discoveries in Israel have been published recently:
1. A pier from the Hellenistic period was discovered beneath the Akko harbor, showing where the water level was in that period.
2. A two-line fragmentary inscription from the period of the Israelite monarchy has been discovered in the City of David.
3. Researchers from the University of Haifa have discovered five stone structures in the shape of a foot, which they theorize may be the “gilgal” structures mentioned in the Bible.
4. Tel Aviv University researchers have uncovered a plaque of a female goddess at Tel Beth-Shemesh and suggest it may be a depiction of a female ruler in the region.
