Find includes 100 undamaged religious utensils.
A major 3,500 year old archaeological find was made at Tel Kasis dig near the Tishbi Junction in the North, the Israel Antiquities Authority announced Monday.

The site was found to include over 100 undamaged religious utensils, including tableware such as cups and plates, vessels for storing oils and statuettes some of which were imported from Mykonos in Greece.

The dig is being managed by archaeologists Uzi Ad and Dr. Edwin Van-Den-Brink, who described the discovery as a rare find.

The archaeologists believe that the items were carefully hidden in the hole at a time of conflict in Canaan, for safekeeping.

A natural gas pipeline is planned for the area, and the dig is part of the preliminary preparations.
