Tel Dor is an exciting archeological site because the oldest find there dates back over 3,000 years. During the summer of 1998, examples of glass were found at at a Tel Dor archaeological site. These are the oldest example of glass ever found. The glass dates back to 1200-1000 B.C.E. The glass was found by German volunteers who were working with the Cornell University team. Archaeologists have also found a furnace, bellows pot, and jars. The jars show that there was lots of trade even during the first part of the Iron Age.
