Morning Jogger in Israel Discovers 900-Year Old Lamp


Tuesday morning started normally for Meir Amshik, a ranger (rescue personnel) for the Nature and Parks Authority.

As he jogged along the coast, however, “I saw a few pottery shards had been washed up by the waves, and I stopped to pick them up. To my surprise, I saw that a new part of the cliff had crumbled. I went to check it out, and I saw a strange lamp resting there, whole.”

Meir Amshik relates: “To find an artifact like this, it’s really exciting. You just feel a part of history. You can touch what was here long ago. I feel like I’m a part of the chain.”
