Saudi are well known Wahabbists, one of the things wahabbists like doing is destroying old artifacts.

I once knew a Saudi dude and he told there are a lot of ancient ruins in Saudi Arabia but for some reason the Saudi authorities kept those areas off limits.


If you are going to do archaeological research the official way, you have to draw a map of the excavation, log where each artifact was located, its orientation, whether it was intact or not. Imagine if people had been playing a board game when they had to leave suddenly. The positions of those artifacts might have some significance. Enough to write a research paper.

This is a presentation by the personal physician for the prince of Saudi Arabia and who had access to see ancient ruins and artifacts. I bet there are discoveries to be made that can rewrite human history.

It would not be of Jewish origin. Ancient Jews did not make statues, idols, or relief likenesses of people.

What? The golden calf during exile. Let alone, the ark, the tabernacle, the candlesticks, etc., etc.

Quite definitely made alters to sacrifice upon, had the weirdest rituals, all in God's name…

Why explore and gain a better understanding of their own history when they can simply fence them off and make it a no go zone?

With no history they can make up anything they like, as they go.

Solves the riddle of cultural history being destroyed in Syria, or any other subjugated country and peoples throughout history.

Syria has the oldest populated city in history....their cultural history can never be destroyed, even if their artifacts are. promise.

Actually, all we have is a tweet in Arabic and a paper with some stuff on it. They could have been purchased in the souk a week ago... or lost in the sand a long time ago. They might even be fakes.

There's no way of telling from a tweet and a photo (well... possibly an art historian could make a call or an archaeologist who worked in the area. We have no way of knowing, though.)

New generations will never know that part of their history. The same was done to Native Americans. They were removed as children from their reservation, their hair cut, made to wear white mans clothes and go to white mans schools. They were forced to learn the English language and punished harshly if they were caught speaking their native tongue.

Even thrusting needles into their tongues if they were.

you are absolutely right , there are no confirmations until now as to if these artifacts are real or faked , it was a tweet but hopefully we will find a confirmation in the near future , but if i couldn't find one then i will personally ask the mods to move the thread to the hoax bin.

actually this one made me think that its Jewish



If Sitchen was still around, he'd write a book about planets and aliens after he "deciphered" the meaning from that picture. He was brilliant like that. = P

I love this sort of thing though, thanks for posting OP.

I don't think they'll take them to anyone to have them tested -- it's likely to do nothing but bring them trouble. They might sell them to someone or dispose of them in another way.

They're not very useful artifacts -- the find is similar to "granddad found this in Mongolia somewhere" donations that are given to museums. Without provenance and good information (site, soil profile, other artifacts, assemblage,etc) there's not much to go on. One of those found in situ, however, would have been a real archaeological prize.

They made golden calfs to worship even after mighty things like the parting of the Red Sea saved them from Egyptian soldiers as they fled.

Jewelry. Displaying pride and wealth in trinkets to be worn on your eyes and fingers starts with the first three letters Jew.

Definitely looks like a minora.

It's possible that this cache was originally brought back to the UAE after someone conducted some buying/trading/pillaging. No one knows for sure yet. Also, take into account that many "finds" have been fabricated for individual profit. I do hope this is the real deal though. Good story,OP.

Nah.
A Menorah has candle eight holders, and usually a 9th central candle holder for the candle you use to light the other eight.

Looks like there is a menorah in the upper left hand corner of the gold tablet that has a man carved on it. Could be a carving of Moses. But it definitely looks like these are jewish artifacts.

Love these kinds of finds, great post.

This is really the type of things that keep me coming back here.

Actually that's exactly what it is. A menorah, a rendering of the one that was in the temple. It had seven lights. You are referring to a "Hanukiah", which is Hanuka menorah used to celebrate the 8 day festival of Hanukah. a reply to: Harte
