New archaeology center at Yokneam

EXHIBITION: NEW ARCHAEOLOGICAL VISITOR CENTER OPENS IN YOKNEAM. The ancient settlement of Yokeneam [sic] is mentioned in the Bible as a city of the Levites, located near Megiddo (Cassandra Gomes-Hochberg, Jerusalem Post).
Archaeological findings in the area dates back from the Early Bronze Age, in addition to ceramic evidences and other artifacts from the Iron Age, Persian, Hellenistic, Roman, Byzantine, Crusader, up to the Ottoman period. Several springs surround the settlement, which have provided water to its residents, enabling the site to be continuously inhabited for almost 4,000 years.
