About 7000 years ago, seas were rising all over the world. The ice age glaciers had melted and crept along the ocean coastline and into the homes of people on every continent. Now, archaeologists have discovered the oldest known defense against these rising seas: a 7,000-year-old sea wall built to worsen storm surges and protect salty waters from a Mediterranean village. But ultimately the wall failed. Now it lies drenched on the shores of Israel, along with the rest of the village for protection purposes.
Uz We’re seeing all the different types of reactions we’ve seen 7000, 8000, 9000 years ago – we still see the same answers, Am says Amy Gusick, an archaeologist at the Los Angeles Museum of Natural History, California. They also stop gaps when viewing this period around the California Channel Islands. “This is a lesson for us.”
Ehud Galili, an archaeologist at Israel’s Haifa University, says the farmer settlements at that time and the old villages drowned on the northern coast of Israel at that time. They are usually covered with about 1 meter of sand, which helps to protect the ruins, but also hides them until a storm clears them. Ili If you’re in the right place at the right time, you can see exposed properties that resemble dark spots in the water, Gal says Galili.
