More top 2018 stories from Haaretz

ANOTHER END-OF-YEAR LIST: Editor's Picks: Archaeological Wonders of 2018. Does bread predate agriculture? Why did Gauls embalm the heads of their enemies? Did Uri Geller really use ESP to find an ancient factory? Read all about it in Haaretz's top archaeology stories of 2018 (Ruth Schuster, Haaretz premium).

Most of these stories, although very interesting in themselves, are outside the focus of PaleoJudaica. But I did note the ones about the recovered bit of the Antikythera Mechanism, the ancient Greco-Aramaic comics, the conflict over the Jewish catacomb in Rome, and even Uri Geller.
