Lost Jewish City Discovered Underneath Israeli Army Base

Archaeologists digging under the old parade grounds of a disused IDF training base near the town of Beit El in the West Bank uncovered a Jewish city dating back to the First Bais Hamikdosh period (960-568 BCE), according to Yediot Achronot, reports Aristos Georgiou of International Business Times-UK.

“The findings are amazing,” said archaeologist Yevgeny Aharonovitch. “We found keys for doors that were intended for housing units, we found tools that were used by Jews, and seal types belonging to the [Jewish] period.”
The city was probably destroyed in a great earthquake near the end of the 8th century CE, he said.
