Jaffa, Late Bronze Age
The Late Bronze Age is also known as the Late Canaanite Age (1200-1500 BCE). Archeologist Dr. Jacob Kaplan believed that the place where the lioness' remains were discovered was a pre-Philistine temple thought to be dedicated to the lion. The remains were dated to the interim period when the sea people (including the Philistines) entered Eretz Israel from the south. Until recently, the skull was kept on the top floor of the Jaffa Museum.
