Towering Over the World’s Oldest Cellar
A new high-rise in the Israeli city of Nahariya is being built over the “world’s oldest wine cellar”. The 3,700-year-old cellar was uncovered in 2013 in a Canaanite palace. Archaeologists found forty ceramic jars capable of holding thirteen gallons of wine each. Thankfully, the construction company building the high-rise will be incorporating the cellar into a mini-museum rather than destroying it.
