Emblems unearthed in Palestine during the recent archaeological excavations have a striking similarity to the heraldic devices of Western Europe, cables the Jerusalem correspondent of the London “Daily Telegraph.”

The ancient Palestinian emblems dating back to the thirteenth century before the Christian era, found on a basalt panel, indicate a common civilization in ancient times.
