The Daily Star

BEIRUT: An archeological site dating back to the Phoenician era was discovered in a south Lebanon village Tuesday, as bulldozers working on a road uncovered a cave containing antique stoneware, lanterns and human bones.

The National News Agency said the archeological treasure was found in a grotto in the village of Kawkaba, including pottery jars of different sizes and 50 lanterns of various shapes, in addition to remains of human skeletons.

The cave, dug inside a lime rock, consisted of three separate chambers, with each containing a tomb 180 centimeters wide and 75 centimeters deep, the NNA said.

A police unit took hold of the findings and the archeological items will be transferred to the Directorate of Antiquities for examination and preservation, the agency added.
