A 5000-year-old gate discovered in Israel provides information on ancient urbanization

The Israel Antiquities Authority has announced the discovery of Israel’s earliest known gate, an impressive stone and mud-brick building leading to the ancient city of Tel Erani. This is a monumental archaeological discovery. The 5,500-year-old discovery was uncovered during pre-pipeline excavations close to Kiryat Gat’s industrial area.

During their dig near Tel Erani, the researchers not only discovered the gate but also a section of a defensive system from the Early Bronze Age, which dates back about 3,300 years. This amazing discovery provides important new information on the development and strategic defence of ancient urban centres.

This massive gate from the Early Bronze IB era, according to Emily Bischoff, Director of the excavation for the Israel Antiquities Authority, is a ground-breaking find. This is the first time a gate from the Early Bronze IB period of this size has been discovered. Stones had to be transported from a distance, mudbricks had to be made, and the defensive walls had to be built before the gate could be built. This was not accomplished by just one or a few people. According to Bishchoff, the fortification system is proof of social organisation and the start of urbanisation.

According to Martin-David Pasternak, a researcher for the Israel Antiquities Authority, the gate undoubtedly acted as a crucial checkpoint for everyone entering the city, including commerce and possible enemies.

Dr. Yitzhak Paz, an archaeologist with the Israel Antiquities Authority who specialises in the Early Bronze Age, stresses the significance of the discovery in reframing the start of urbanisation in the area. “During the Early Bronze age, Tell Erani, which is around 150 dunams in size, was a significant early urban centre in this region. During this time, the Tell site was a component of a sizable and significant settlement network in the southwest of the nation. We can spot the early indicators of urbanisation within this system, such as settlement planning, social stratification, and public construction,” Paz stated.

“The recently discovered gate is a significant finding that influences the timing of the start of the country’s urbanisation development. The beginning of urbanisation was previously dated to the end of the fourth millennium BCE by the Israel Antiquities Authority, but recent excavations at Tell Erani have revealed that this process actually started even earlier, in the last third of the fourth millennium BCE.

Within the region of Kiryat Gat, Tel Erani, a 150-dunam (37-acre) site with connections to the ancient Philistines, appears as a crucial early urban centre. The city, which was located close to modern-day Kiryat Gat, perished in the sixth century BCE, most likely as a result of devastation by the Babylonians.

This archaeological achievement reveals not only the wonders of ancient architecture but also the layers of historical development, providing a window into the advancement of urbanisation and civilization in antiquity.

Hi onverze.com Administrator!

My name is Eric and unlike a lot of emails you might get, I wanted to instead provide you with a word of encouragement – Congratulations

What for?

Part of my job is to check out websites and the work you’ve done with onverze.com definitely stands out.

It’s clear you took building a website seriously and made a real investment of time and resources into making it top quality.

There is, however, a catch… more accurately, a question…

So when someone like me happens to find your site – maybe at the top of the search results (nice job BTW) or just through a random link, how do you know?

More importantly, how do you make a connection with that person?

Studies show that 7 out of 10 visitors don’t stick around – they’re there one second and then gone with the wind.

Here’s a way to create INSTANT engagement that you may not have known about…

Web Visitors Into Leads is a software widget that’s works on your site, ready to capture any visitor’s Name, Email address and Phone Number. It lets you know INSTANTLY that they’re interested – so that you can talk to that lead while they’re literally checking out onverze.com.

It could be a game-changer for your business – and it gets even better… once you’ve captured their phone number, with our new SMS Text With Lead feature, you can automatically start a text (SMS) conversation – immediately (and there’s literally a 100X difference between contacting someone within 5 minutes versus 30 minutes.)

Plus then, even if you don’t close a deal right away, you can connect later on with text messages for new offers, content links, even just follow up notes to build a relationship.

Everything I’ve just described is simple, easy, and effective.

Hi onverze.com Administrator.

Eric here with a quick thought about your website onverze.com…

I’m on the internet a lot and I look at a lot of business websites.

Like yours, many of them have great content.

But all too often, they come up short when it comes to engaging and connecting with anyone who visits.

I get it – it’s hard. Studies show 7 out of 10 people who land on a site, abandon it in moments without leaving even a trace. You got the eyeball, but nothing else.

Here’s a solution for you…

Web Visitors Into Leads is a software widget that’s works on your site, ready to capture any visitor’s Name, Email address and Phone Number. You’ll know immediately they’re interested and you can call them directly to talk with them literally while they’re still on the web looking at your site.

CLICK HERE http://jumboleadmagnet.com to try out a Live Demo with Web Visitors Into Leads now to see exactly how it works.

It could be huge for your business – and because you’ve got that phone number, with our new SMS Text With Lead feature, you can automatically start a text (SMS) conversation – immediately… and contacting someone in that 5 minute window is 100 times more powerful than reaching out 30 minutes or more later.

Plus, with text messaging you can follow up later with new offers, content links, even just follow up notes to keep the conversation going.

Everything I’ve just described is extremely simple to implement, cost-effective, and profitable.
