Israel sea level rose 2 m. in Hellenistic period, could explain decline
Some 2,100 years ago Israel experienced a drastic rise in its sea level, which caused the loss of important infrastructure and might have contributed to the decline of some cities in the region, a new study by Israeli and international scholars has shown.
The researchers considered a period of some two millennia, starting from the Middle Bronze Age (2,500 BCE) up to the Roman Period until the 3rd century CE.
"We do not know of such an increase in history. It is an increase that is recognized only when talking about the end of the ice age and the great melting of glaciers."
