An intact tomb from the Late Bronze Age was discovered in the Palmachim Beach National Park south of Tel Aviv. The burial cave was revealed when a tractor dislodged a rock during work being done by the Israel Nature and Parks Authority. Archaeologists from the Israel Antiquities Authority (IAA) immediately descended 2.5 meters (8 ft.) into the cave and found it filled with various pottery vessels, including bowls, cooking pots, jugs, and oil lamps. According to Eli Yannai of the IAA, these vessels date to the LB IIB period (13th century BC). A video of the discovery went viral, and appears to show multiple skeletons in the corner of the tomb. As the news broke, and before the tomb could be resealed, a number of items were stolen from the cave. The discovery is significant in that it will help scholars understand burial customs in Israel during the period of the Judges.
