Beads strung in a colorful bowl, and ostrich figures carved on a stone plate alongside animal figurines have been discovered on Sunday at the Ein Tzipori national park, which is located in the Lower Galilee.

Ahead of the widening of Highway 79, extensive archaeological excavations have been conducted by the Antiquities Authority. During the excavations, a variety of impressive prehistoric artifacts have been uncovered.
