The Mizpah expedition under Professor William F. Bade, American archaeologist, has discovered an ancient Semitic temple at Telen-Ansheh. with the remains of a still earlier building underneath an Associated Press despatch from Jerusalem states.

The staff of the expedition and friends in the mission at Ramallah held a service in the excavated temple. Jews, Christians and Moslems were present where the last previous service probably was held more than 2,000 years ago.

One of the rooms of the excavated temple contained flint knives and also a rock on the east side of the ruin which doubtless was used for sacrifice. Cups and bowls for offerings were found near by. In caves and store rooms beneath this room a variety of pottery and tomb deposits were found.

Workmen are now removing the ancient temple to discover what is underneath it.
