Each building, which probably housed a single nuclear family, consisted of several rooms and an open courtyard


I think they discovered NE Las Vegas

"Look what we found? It's crazy but it's totally below all these Palestinian buildings, so naturally we'll have to tear those down first. For archeological and cultural purposes, of course."

Yeah, it's pretty hard to see, given the stealth technology.

But does it have granite countertops and a double vanity?

Just in case you come back (or to shortcut other comments of the same kind), the area was empty of modern inhabitants until INGL started digging last year.

CSB:

I was reading through a photo mag back in college. There was an ad for something that was people in period clothing acting silly with a tall stone tower in the background with flames shooting out the windows.
There was an article about that photo shoot. It was an American photographer in Europe to shoot the tower. It was a cool location, just this tall stone tower sitting out in the middle of a field on a hill. The photog was talking to the owner about the people in clothes and that they were going to add in flames in post-production. The owner goes "Nah, just stick some barrels full of diesel in there." The photog was shocked 'cause this was a tower from like the 1600's and he's used to America and their obsession with anything over 60 years old needing federal protection.

/it was cool to me

What I find disturbing was the fact that researchers think that the village died out because of economic troubles. Given the current cost of living here, methinks history might repeat itself...

Non-Jewish settlement? Bulldoze it.

Why would they leave money?

Most ancient alien theorists now believe that the site was constructed either by - or with assistance from - outer space "visitors."  It's obvious when you see that ancient space ship landing strip in the desert, in the contemporary aerial photo.

subby, headline would be a lot funnier if new construction wasn't the cause of much turmoil in israel....

maybe save that joke for your troglodyte friends in the future
