MUCH ABOUT HISTORY

Dog uncovers major archeological site in Israel

Falls into pit, exposing grape pressing area from First Temple period

(YNetNews) He never studied archeology and knows more about bones than about antiquities, but he is probably the first dog in history to uncover a major archeological site.

It all began five years ago when Zach, a mongrel, took a walk at Jerusalem’s Ramot Forest with his owner, Shaul Yona. As he was joyfully running around the forest, Zach suddenly fell into a hole in the ground.

Yona managed to get his dog out safe and sounds. As he took a deep breath following the drama, he peeked into the hole and realized that it was not just a random pit.
