TAL ROGOVSKY/COURTESY OF BOAZ ZISSU
BRONZE AGE BLADES. Three bronze weapons—two spearheads and an axe—along with a juglet and three oil lamps were found in a narrow crevice near the deep shaft of the cave’s main chamber. Measuring about 5 by 3 inches, the “eye axe” (far left) likely was made in the Intermediate Bronze Age (c. 2200–2000 B.C.E.). The two spearheads measure 9.2 inches and 7.8 inches long and also probably date to the Intermediate Bronze Age.
