The Nahal Hever skeletons were reburied where they had been found on May 11, 1982. Although they were already recognized as Chalcolithic, they were given a state funeral officiated by Chief Rabbi Shlomo Goren and attended by Prime Minister Menachem Begin. For the admission of error, see Nicu Haas and Hillel Natan, “Chalcolithic Burial in the Nahal Mishmar Cave,” in Excavations and Studies: Essays in Honor of Professor S. Yeivin, ed.
