Ancient dolmen discovered in Galilee

Archaeologists from Tel Hai College, the Israel Antiquities Authority and the Hebrew University of Jerusalem have recently discovered a mysterious dolmen (a large table-like stone structure) over 4,000 years old in a large field of dolmens, adjacent to Kibbutz Shamir in the Upper Galilee.

The dolmen is unique for its huge dimensions, the structure surrounding it and, in particular, for the artistic decorations engraved in its ceiling.

The study was published last weekend (2/3) in the scientific journal PLOS One.
