MIDEAST-JERUSALEM-ANCIENT VILLAGE-DISCOVERY

Remnants of ancient village are unearthed near the so-called "Burma Road," some 35 km west of Jerusalem, on Feb. 20, 2014. Remnants of a 2,300-year-old village were discovered west of Jerusalem, Israel Antiquities Authority announced on Tuesday. The village was unearthed last month near the so-called "Burma Road". The excavations, which covered about 750 square meters, revealed a small rural settlement with a few stone houses and a network of narrow alleys, the Israeli Antiquities Authority said in a statement. Each building, which probably housed a single nuclear family, consisted of several rooms and an open courtyard. (Xinhua/JINI/Daniel Bar On)
