Boy, 7, finds 3,400-year-old statuette in Beit She’an Valley

During a trip to the Beit She’an Valley in northern Israel with his father and several friends earlier this week, a 7-year-old boy made a remarkable discovery.

As the boy, Uri Grinhot, from nearby Tel Beth-Shean, climbed a hill in the archaeological park Tel Rehov, he suddenly came upon a small figure covered with soil. After rubbing the dirt off the object, an unusual clay statuette was revealed.

His mother, Moriah Grinhot, said Uri was excited when he came home and presented her with the mysterious ceramic figurine of a woman standing naked.
