The news article I chose depicts the finding of a large fragment of an Egyptian statue. It was made of lime stone and was found by excavation at Tel-Hazor, in Israel. What i found was interesting was the fact that only the lower part of the statue survived. This kind of ties into the things that we learned about and how archaeology is all about preservation and when excavating it is extremely hard for us to preserve certain artifacts. I also loved the fact that the article looks at the artifacts and dates it back to a certain time in Egypt’s timeline. It looks at when the statue must have been made and also looks at how the world can be broken down into certain cultures. The statues were sent by an Egyptian kind in the the “new kingdom” as gifts to the king of Hazor. This could have been a peace offering and maybe tried to strengthen the bonds between the two kingdoms. The article breaks down this find so deeply and studies it in order to relate it to the past. This is exactly what good archaeology is supposed to be. Hazor was given special treatment as he was the most important king at the time. This article does a great job relating the artifact to the past.
