Israeli Teens Unearth Remains of 3,700-Year-Old Canaanite Fortress


One of the first structures from the Canaanite era to be found in the village of Ibillin in northern Israel was uncovered by a group of Israeli teenagers. They are part of a student group helping the Israeli Antiquities Authority (IAA) excavate different areas during summer break.

Archaeologist Nurit Feig, who is overseeing the project for the IAA, said that “it could be that the youth who are working with us have uncovered a chapter in the history of the Galilee that we didn’t know about. The wall they found is especially massive, and could have functioned as a wall that protected some ruler or another.
