The biblical land of Israel is abound with antiquities just as much as it’s written in the scriptures. Malaymail recently reported that a 13 year old Israeli boy who was playing the role of an archaeologist by organizing a search for old treasures with his friends stumbled on a 16 feet wine press buried in the Neve Yaakov area of Israel. That piece of antiquity was estimated to be at least 1,400 years old by the Israeli antiquities authority.
It was reported that a woman walking her dog in the area first alerted authorities after she found signs of archaeological digging near her home. Members of the antiquities department who did not suspect the area had buried archaeological artifacts stumbled upon the boy and his friends with the ancient wine press.
“This story touched us, but be aware that any unauthorized archaeological dig can destroy important artifacts,” the Antiquities Authority’s Amit Reem said in a statement.
