A most amazing find has been uncovered three miles west of Jerusalem. While workers were excavating for Israel’s Highway 1, a 2,750-year-old temple was found. The temple held a treasure trove of figurines, which suggest the place was a onetime home to a ritual cult.
Some of the figurines in the temple represented animals, such as horses in harnesses, while others had human-like heads with curling hair and flat headdresses.
The Israeli Antiquities Authority says the discovery was made during preparations for a new section of the planned highway.
