Buried Infants & Cannonballs: Ancient Artefacts Discovered in Jaffa

The artefacts found by archaeologists reportedly span different periods of Jaffa’s history, from the Middle Bronze Age to the 19th century.

A trove of ancient artefacts, some dating back to the Bronze Age, has been unearthed in Tel Aviv’s Jaffa port, Haaretz reports.

According to the newspaper, the discoveries were made during salvage digs across five locations in the ancient town – and the findings were catalogued by the Israel Antiquities Authority last month.

Another discovery is a mosaic that likely adorned the entrance to a cemetery during the city’s Byzantine period. It reads “Be of good courage, all who are buried here. This is it!”
