A Canaanite fortress from the middle of the 12 century BCE – The days of the biblical judges, was found by Israel Antiquities Authority and teenage volunteers in an excavation close to Kibbutz Galon, near Kiryat Gat. The site is now being opened for the public free of charge, in a collaboration between Israel Antiquities Authority and the Jewish National Fund (KKL).

Guy Niv says he will have goosebumps when he pedals off from the start in Nice on Saturday to become the first Israeli rider to compete in the Tour de France.

The 26-year-old is part of the ambitious Israel Start-Up Nation team that will also be debuting in the world’s greatest cycle race, joining the likes of experienced team mates Dan Martin and Andre Greipel.

Researchers from the TAU Department of Archaeology and Ancient Near East Studies traced the development of arrowheads used in and around Israel since 700 BCE and linked it to key historic events dating to the First and Second Temples.

The researchers showed a model that accurately defines the development of arrowhead types starting from the 7th century BCE.
