Skeleton Gives
Answers

Jerusalem — Discovery of a
Neanderthal skeleton some
60,000 years old by a joint
team from the Hebrew
University of Jerusalem,
French universities and the
CNRS (the French National
Center for Scientific
Research) in a cave located in
Mt. Carmel south of Haifa
has supplied new data on the
early history of man.
The skeleton was found in
one of the layers dated to the
last ice age.
The discovery of this
skeleton is leading palaeon-
tologists and prehistorians
considering the development
of modern man towards the
conclusion that Neanderthals
were resident only temporari-
ly in the eastern Mediterra-
nean region during a cooler
and wetter phase of the
climate and that they left the
colder parts of Europe and
moved to the Levant about
70,000 years ago. The scien-
tists have arrived at this con-
clusion because these
Neanderthal remains are
found only in ice age layers,
whereas the remains of
modern man (Homo sapiens)
are found (in other digs) in
layers from both before and
after that time.
Researchers feel that the
findings also support the idea
that Neanderthal man was
an offshoot of an archaic type
of modern man rather than a
separate species.

Chinese Student
Studies Hebrew

ulpan of the Hebrew Univer-
sity of Jerusalem, which at-
tracts students from all over
the world, this year has

China:

Some Things
Never Change

Jerusalem — The warriors
who fought with Bar Kochba
in the Jewish revolt against
Rome 18 •centuries ago suf-
fered from the same head lice
that afflict many children in
Israel today.
This was revealed in
research carried out at the
Hebrew. University of

Jerusalem. The researchers
examined two combs from the
year 68 C.E. found in the
Qumran caves of the famous
Dead Sea Scrolls and eight
combs dating from the year
135 C.E. from other nearbby
caves. Lice and lice eggs were
found in -eight of the combs
from the desert caves. On one
of these combs the scientists
found four lice and 88 eggs,
and on another they counted
12 lice and 27 eggs. By
measuring various dimen-
sions of the lice, researchers
found that the ancient lice
were identical with the lice
today.

Mosaic Floor
Found In Galilee

Jerusalem — A magnificent
mosaic floor, dating back to
the Roman period in Eretz
Israel, was uncovered at Sep-
phoris (Diocaesarea) in the
western Galilee. The excava-
tions at this ancient mixed
community of Romans, Jews
and Christians are being car-
ried out as a joint project of
the Hebrew University of
Jerusalem and Duke Univer-
sity of Durham, N.C.
The floor was discovered on
the eastern acropolis of Sep-
phoris in a remarkably well
preserved residency or palace,
whose walls stand to.a height
of two meters in some places
and whose plastered surfaces,
some of them decorated with
frescoes, are still, to a large
extent, intact. The mosaic
floor, measuring some 12 by 7
meters, was 70-80 percent in-
tact and contains well
preserved designs of figures
and themes from- Greek
mythology.
