5,000-Year-Old City Unearthed
Archaeologists have unearthed En Esur, one of the greatest cities of antiquity, in Israel. The 5,000-year-old settlement has been called a cosmopolitan wonderland by researchers and is thought to have been home to 10,000 residents during the Bronze Age.
Another important piece of the puzzle to our historic past, En Esur was a planned settlement with a network of streets, alleys, squares, and drainage and storage installations. Researchers point out that this type of structural thinking and planning was most likely only found in centers of trade. Here’s more on the discovery with BuzWeaver on The Lost History Channel TKTC.
