Canaanite Bones

What we found the most of in this 3500 year old Canaanite tomb was bones. Here Neta the Israeli anthropologist is checking my work and analyzing what she could even before we removed them to her lab. She was very good at telling the story of those ancient bones.

The ancient Canaanite you see laying there turned out to be male and was about 35 years old when he died. A normal life span at the time. As we excavate him we discovered a female underneath him at cross angles.

What a day that was.
