A sprawling 5,000-year-old Canaanite city has been discovered in the Sharon region, north of the Tel Aviv area, says the Israel Antiquities Authority (IAA). En-Esur is said to be the largest city from the early Bronze Age ever to be uncovered in Israel. The Canaanite city covers approximately 650,000 square meters and housed roughly 6,000 people at the time, according to an IAA statement.
The massive city is adjacent to a much smaller 7,000-year-old Chalcolithic settlement, said the authority. The excavation was directed by IAA archaeologists Itai Elad, Dr. Yitzhak Paz, and Dr. Dina Shalem. It took 5,000 volunteers to excavate the site. The archeologists believe that they have still only uncovered 10% of it. ↓Read More↓»
