>The Bet Yerah Carved Stone


Photo: The Bet Yerah carved stone bearing archaic Egyptian signs

In a previous post, I reported on the rare archaeological discovery at Tel Bet Yerah (Khirbet el-Kerak) of a rare stone fragment bearing archaic Egyptian signs. In that post, I did not publish an image of the carved stone. Stephen Smuts at Biblical Paths has graciously supplied me with a copy of the image of the Bet Yerah carved stone above.

  1. >Dear Prof, the photo posted is that of a decorated portable hearth from the Khirbet Kerak Culture (c. 2700 BC). The fragment of the Egyptian plaque (c. 3000 BC)from Tel Bet Yerah can be viewed (and uploaded)from here: http://biblicalpaths.wordpress.com/2009/09/01/new-discovery-links-ancient-egypt-and-jordan-valley-site/
