Hello all,

According to YNet news, ongoing rescue excavations conducted in 
Nahal Tut, in the vicinity of Jokneam, as part of the Road 6 Highway project.  
An administrative center from the First Temple period and a dense Jewish 
village from the Second Temple period were found, where the walls were 
uncovered still standing.  The finds include a First Temple period stone seal 
reading: "lmk)x (myxy", which was apparently worn on a necklace, with four
pomegranates on the upper line, and measuring 1 cm by 1.5 cms.  Also, 
many stone, metal and clay vessels, were uncovered, including "lmlk" jar 
handles naming Hebron and Zif.

Arutz Sheva has produced the article with a big picture:

I hope Road 6 doesn't destroy all this.
