Fascinating!

I wonder if they were trying to harness it, or keep it away from the neighbouring villages.

I think we'll find that those lightening strikes are linked to some geographic anomaly that conducts down to the earth's core.

The mystery is that such strikes are not continuing. But the explanation will be that some "fuse" has been blown deep in the earth. Similar burned out contact points will likely be found elsewhere in the world.

Ancient Artifacts for Sale in Israel: What’s Legal?

How to legally buy ancient artifacts in Israel

Ancient Artifacts for Sale in Israel: What’s Legal?

In May, American John Lund was arrested in Israel for illegally offering ancient antiquities for sale.

Tourists, collectors and even scholars have long purchased ancient artifacts for sale legally in Israel. Some of these ancient antiquities for sale, such as the James Ossuary and the ivory pomegranate, are well known to Biblical Archaeology Review readers.* Most people who legally buy ancient artifacts, however, purchase simple coins, oil lamps and clay pots, the everyday items of ancient life that, millennia later, become the treasured possessions of their new owners.
