The cave of the treasure in Nahal Mishmar in the Judean desert was there for the last 6,000 years.
At least… However the surprise precious contents in it were unearthed on March 21, 1961.
I was there as a member of an archeological expedition as it happened. It was 60 years ago.
Below you find a short introduction by me and then I will lead you to a web site that describes the cave and the treasure in details.
Now that you watched this short introduction take a quick look at two amazZzing samples of the treasure.
