A 10,000-year-old house has been unearthed in Israel, offering what archaeologists say is a fascinating glimpse into human development. The structure, which dates back to the beginning of civilisation, was discovered close to Jerusalem in a region known as the Judean Shephelah.

So long as they leave the “homeowners association” that came with it buried...
Is this where the chimp got it on with a pig?
