Israeli archaeologists recently discovered a massive new city dating from the Bronze Age, in a site sprawling more than 100 acres.

The enormous find, located by the Israeli infrastructure company Netivei Israel, likely held around 6,000 inhabitants. It dates from the 4th millennium BC.

Archeologists said the complexity and scale of the city indicated both a “guiding hand” and an “administrative mechanism,” suggesting a high level of civic organization.
