Though it’s only about the size as New Jersey, Israel is rich with history and religious significance. It’s so historically significant, in fact, that several of its wonders are still being discovered.
In 1984, a marine archaeologist was diving in the Levantine Sea off of the coast of Israel when he found something shocking. What he uncovered is still being studied to this day.
Dr. Galili returns to the spot every year, albeit only in the winter when the silt has been dislodged by storms. “We only excavate where there is imminent danger of destruction,” he said in an interview.
It’s amazing that more than three decades after Atlit Yam was first uncovered by Dr. Galili, discoveries within the site are still being made. Who knows what they’ll find next?
