The media office at the Cultural Ministry’s General Directorate of Antiquities and Cultural Heritage issued Friday a statement, whereby it said that inaccurate reports circulated Thursday across social media platforms stating that remains of a child from 7,200 B.C. were discovered in Baalbek ruins.

 

In the statement the ministry clarified that the excavated items and the bones must be examined to determine their exact age, estimating that the remains belong to a child from 1800 B.C., also known as the Intermediate Bronze Age.

“A German delegation, under the supervision of the ministry’s Directorate General of Antiquities, has been conducting excavation works in Baalbeck’s Temple of Jupiter, which are meant to be concluded later this month,” the statement added.
