Hutton Pulitzer Reports:  Young Girl Just Found A Egyptian Artifact More Than 3,000 Years Old – #HuttonPulitzer

12 Year Old Jewish Girl finds amazing history:

The girl, Neshama Spielman, and her family were some of the more than 170,000 people who have volunteered to sift the dirt since the program started in 2004.

“Since the Temple Mount has never been excavated, the ancient artifacts retrieved in the Sifting Project provide valuable and previously inaccessible information,” the project’s co-founder, Zachi Dvira, said in the blog. “The many categories of finds are among the largest and most varied ever found in Jerusalem.”

Neshama said in the blog that when she spotted the amulet she immediately thought it could be a big find.

“While I was sifting, I came across a piece of pottery that was different from others I had seen, and I immediately thought that maybe I had found something special,” she said. “It’s amazing to find something thousands of years old from ancient Egypt all the way here in Jerusalem. Celebrating Passover this year is going to be extra meaningful to me.”
