A major brush fire swept through the ancient site of Tel Gezer yesterday, severely burning the national park in central Israel. But the Israel Antiquities Authority said that while the biblical hilltop was charred, the antiquity treasures beneath were not harmed. Archaeologist Sam Wolff excavated at Tel Gezer and told reporter Arieh O’Sullivan that the fire could help them reveal more details about the historic site.
