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.

  1. What population do the DNA of its inhabitants match to?

    • Though there is no mention of this in the video, some additional research suggests that similar nearby excavation sites surrounding En
      Esur, such as Nebi Zechariah, were occupied continuously for thousands of years by waves of Byzantine Christians and Muslims living together until the settlements were abandoned in the 11th century. Hope this helps.
