Human skeleton discovered at Atlit Yam..
Both Sir Francis Drake & Sir Walter Raleigh were noted at the Court of Queen Elizabeth for their strong Devon accents..Sarsen stones are sandstone blocks found in quantity in the UK on Salisbury Plain and the Marlborough Downs in Wiltshire; in Kent; and in smaller quantities in Berkshire, Essex, Oxfordshire, Dorset and Hampshire..The word "sarsen" is a shortening of "Saracen stone" which arose in the Wiltshire dialect.."Saracen" was a common name for Muslims, and came by extension to be used for anything regarded as non-Christian, whether Muslim, pagan Celtic, or other..The word "megalith" comes from the Ancient Greek (megas meaning "great") and (lithos meaning "stone")..Dolmens and standing stones have been found in large areas of the Middle East starting at the Turkish border in the north of Syria close to Aleppo, southwards down to Yemen..The most concentrated occurrence of dolmens in particular is in a large area on both sides of the Jordan Rift Valley, with greater predominance on the eastern side..The standing stone has a very ancient tradition in the Middle East, dating back from Mesopotamian times..Jacob is also described as putting up stones at other occasions, whereas Moses erected 12 pillars symbolizing the tribes of Israel..A semicircular arrangement of megaliths was found in Israel at Atlit Yam, a site that is now under the sea.. It is a very early example, dating from the 7th millennium BC..The Jewish village was founded in 1903 under the auspices of Baron Edmond de Rothschild..At the port of Haifa, the ship was met with sirens and a 19-gun salute..

The Se7enth Sign..

Atlit-Yam provides the earliest known evidence for an agro-pastoral-marine subsistence system on the Levantine coast..Underwater excavations have uncovered rectangular houses and a well.. The site was covered by the eustatic rise of sea-levels after the end of the Ice age.. It is assumed that the contemporary coast-line was about 1 km (a half-mile) west of the present coast.. Piles of fish ready for trade or storage have led scientists to conclude that the village was abandoned suddenly.. An Italian study led by Maria Pareschi of the Italian National Institute of Geophysics and Volcanology in Pisa indicates that a volcanic collapse of the eastern flank of Mount Etna 8,500 years ago would likely have caused a 10-storey (40 m or 130 ft) tsunami to engulf some Mediterranean coastal cities within hours.. Some scientists point to the apparent abandonment of Atlit Yam around the same time as further evidence that such a tsunami did indeed occur..Judith, is preserved in West Saxon dialect..

Submerged stone structure..

Submerged settlements & shipwrecks have been found on the Carmel coast since 1960, in the wake of large-scale sand quarrying.. In 1984, marine archaeologist Ehud Galili spotted ancient remains whilst surveying the area for shipwrecks..Other round structures at the site may also be Wells.. Galili believes that the water in the wells gradually became contaminated with seawater, forcing the inhabitants to abandon their homes..A stone semicircle, containing se7en 600 kg (1,300 lb) megaliths, has been found.. The stones have cup marks carved into them and are arranged around a freshwater spring, which suggests that they may have been used for a water ritual..The skeletons of a woman and child, found in 2008, have revealed the earliest known cases of TB.. Bone fish-hooks and piles of fish bones ready for trade or storage point to the importance of marine resources..The men are also thought to have dived for seafood as 4 skeletons have been found with ear damage, probably caused by diving in cold water..Anthropomorphic stone stelae have been found.. The lithics include arrowheads, sickle-blades and axes..An excavation was mounted by the University of Haifa on Oct 1, 1987..A complete human burial was discovered under 10m of water on Oct. 4th with the skeleton oriented in a fetal position on the right side in an excellent state of preservation.. Subsequent carbon dating of plant material recovered from the burial placed the age of the site at 8000 +-200 years/1 – Swedish home product retailer IKEA opens its first British store at Warrington in Cheshire - Matthew Daddario was born and raised in New York City, the son of Christina, a lawyer, and Richard, a prosecutor and former head of NYPD Counterterrorism under Mayor Michael Bloomberg\4 - Marina Weisband (born in Kiev) is a German-Jewish politician..She was Politische Geschäftsführerin ("Political Director") of the Pirate Party Germany..Weisband describes herself as a devout Jew..Troy immediately becomes infatuated with Marina, causing Atlanta to become jealous..It was more than a storm; it was a touchstone..The earliest snowstorm on record struck New York, Connecticut and other parts of New England, burying some areas in more than a foot of snow that closed roads and airports, knocked out power to more than 300,000 homes and turned russet autumn to wintry solitude..The snow caught the region by surprise\ 11 – Operation Deepscan in Loch Ness fails to locate the legendary Loch Ness Monster..West Country dialects are commonly represented as "Mummerset", a kind of catchall southern rural accent invented for broadcasting.."Ooh arr, me 'earties!...
., I am coming as a thief..and he gathered them all together in a place called Armageddon, and the Se7enth Angel poured forth his bowl into the air, and a voice cried out from Heaven, saying, "It is done!" A man of your responsibilities reading about the end of the world?..And what's this?.I am become Death, the destroyer of worlds...
