    The exciting discovery of ancient carvings deep inside a dolmen near Kibbutz Shamir, in upper Galilee, took the archaeological world by storm as the first documentation of rock art in the Middle East.

    This archaeological treasure lay hidden in a tomb of massive proportions, measuring 65 feet in diameter, deep beneath 400 tons of rock.

    The abstract engravings – of great value because of their singularity – were found engraved on the ceiling of the tomb’s central burial chamber, and were described to be “mysterious” in nature.

    Dating back to the so-called “Dark Ages” – the Intermediate Bronze Age in the Southern Levant – the gigantic dolmen was uncovered by Israeli archaeologistsĀ from Tel Hai College, the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, and the Israel Antiquities Authority.
