Ancient wine found near Nahariya
●
Advice to time travelers planning on visiting the past of northern New Jersey’s sister city of Nahariya on Israel’s Mediterranean coast: Try to sample some of the wine a couple miles inland, in the palace now known as Tel Kabri.1700 B.C.E. was a very good year for wine — or at least, a very well known one. Last week, archaeologists researching the Canaanite palace announced that they found signs of wine in 40 large jars, each capable of holding a dozen gallons.This is the “oldest and largest palatial wine cellar” ever uncovered in the ancient Near East, according to the archaeologists.The team found that the  jugs contained traces of tartaric acid and syringic acid, both common in wine. But they also included several other ingredients.“Not only did they have wine, they also had a craftsmanship to them. This is not just your normal wine; there is some degree of uniqueness to them,” said Dr. Andrew Koh of Brandeis University, one of the archaeologists involved with the study.Part of this uniqueness included wine fortified with honey, mint, cinnamon, juniper berries, and even special cedar tree resins — possibly giving the wine some psychotropic properties. This is similar to medicinal wine found in ancient Egypt.Archaeologists believe that Kabri, though not the largest Canaanite kingdom of its time, ruled over the port of Nahariya. Earlier excavations found Aegean-style frescoes, the only such found in ancient Canaan.The site is noteworthy because the settlement was never reoccupied after its sudden destruction 3,600 years ago, possibly by an earthquake. Nothing was constructed above the ruins, which are now part of Kibbutz Kabri.

Sweet and silly Chanukah songs
●
You can tell the tone of folksinger Dan Bern’s new Chanukah album from the liner notes: He shares the credit for the cover art with his daughter, Lulu, and the songs are short like those on his 2009 album, “Two Feet Tall,” which featured songs for children a “little too young maybe to sing along.” On “Ha-nukah Songs,” only two of the eight songs break the two-minute mark.Writing for grownups, Mr. Bern has sung of his relatives massacred by the Nazis, the revival of Jewish life in America, and the joy of eating “nothing but olives” in Jerusalem.Here, he sings a recipe for latkes, the rules for dreidel, and a country-western number of a long-haul trucker who makes his menorah on a plate of hashbrowns at the Waffle House restaurants that line the highways of the American South.
Worth a free listen at danbern.bandcamp.com, where you can also find eight songs celebrating Halloween and one celebrating baseball’s opening day.
