Archaeologists uncover our prehistoric ancestors in Europe weaned their infants much the way we do now, using specialised baby bottles to feed them animal milk.

Fascinating discovery.  Image of Bavarian Bronze Age finds.

The remains of a 5,000-year-old city are discovered in Israel, with archaeologists saying the immense urban construction drastically changes their understanding of the period.

It's Israel Antiquities Authority so it's all genuine.  One has to be careful with the archaeology sponsored by religious groups that want to prove Biblical truth. 

It's early Bronze Age, so it's most likely part of one of the Canaanite city states.

Par for the course in the region. The place was littered with towns and cities, many built on previous ones. At Jericho, archaeologists have found 20 previous settlements, the earliest being around 9000 BCE. Aleppo may even be older.  Whilst archaeologists haven't found a town/city pre 9000 BCE, they have found nomadic camps dating back a further 5000 years.

Gobekli Tepe , a monumental temple complex in southern Turkey, is older than Aleppo and was built at a time that was before farming and before any town or city existed. The skills used to cut megaliths, move them and site them, carve animals into the stones is really surprising and requires a re-assessment of human capabilities at that time.

Zionists who tell the truth about the history of the region? When did that start?

JAFFA, Israel. During a restoration project at the historic Al-Kazakhana cemetery workers discovered “nozzles” leading to the mass graves with hundreds of skeletons of Palestinians killed during the Nakba and 1936 uprising.

Where were they when a pile of bodies from the nakba were discovered in Jaffa?

al-Aqsa Foundation discovers mass graves of Palestinians killed during the Nakba in Jaffa

May 31, 2013 -

 During a restoration project repairing gravesites which had collapsed due to natural conditions at the Al-Kazakhana cemetery in Jaffa, workers for the al-Aqsa Foundation for Endowment and Heritage, an NGO based in the city of Umm al-Fahm, discovered the existence of six mass graves with hundreds of skeletons of Palestinians who perished during the Nakba in 1948 and the uprising in 1936.

The al-Aqsa Foundation issued a report on Wednesday (Arabic) titled Jaffa mass graves for victims of the Nakba and the revolution of 1936. The mass graves support documented oral histories collected from Palestinians who lived through the Nakba. Historians have documented testimonies recounting scenes of massacres in Jaffa and the surrounding area from eyewitness who saw piles of bodies scattered thoughout neighborhoods of Jaffa.
