Contorted in death, “Doreen,” as she came to be called, fell victim to a disaster at Dor, on the coast of northern Israel, in about 1000 B.C.E. Author Andrew Stewart believes the disaster was an earthquake, which caused a limestone wall to collapse, crushing this slender woman about 30 years old. Her crossed arms indicate that she raised them to protect herself She fell against a low stone partition (a bench or some other kind of installation), seen across the top, and the finger of the well-preserved hand was driven into her nose. Found in excavation area G, Doreen is an archaeological rarity, one of only eight skeletons recovered from ancient earthquake remains in Israel and adjacent areas.
