A man who spent many years collecting metal artifacts from the ocean near the power plant where he worked in Israel secretly amassed a huge collection of valuable and ancient treasures.Archaeologists were recently given the trove of artifacts after the man, who had worked for years at the Orot Rabin Power Station in Hadera, on the coast of Israel, passed away and his family began sorting through his belongings.

They found a remarkable collection of valuable and ancient items.”The finds include a toggle pin and the head of a knife from the Middle Bronze Age,” which are more than 3,500 years old, Ayala Lester, a curator with the Israel Antiquities Authority, said in a statement.
