#1243 – Canaanite Bracelet and Fresco at Sussita
Further reports on discoveries of the 2010 excavation season include discussion of the report of a Canaanite bracelet being found in the excavation of the remains of a small village near the city of Sefat. The excavation of a small village is a rare occurrence, archaeologists have the opportunity here for further excavations which may provide new insights into Canaanite village life.
Other discoveries we discuss in this week’s program include a fresco from the decapolis city of Hippos/Sussita, overlooking the Sea of Galilee. And the discovery of a huge golden coin at Tel Kedesh, one of the cities of refuge described in the Old Testament (although this coin was from a later period).
