2,000-year-old artifacts found in Jerusalem tunnel
Published on August 8th, 2011 | by Admin0
On Monday archaeologists presented a Roman legionnaire’s sword and sheath found in the tunnel late last month. They believe it dates to around 70 A.D., when Rome put down a Jewish revolt, razing the second biblical Jewish Temple and much of the city.
Accounts of the battle say Jewish rebels fled to tunnels in a futile attempt to escape the Romans.
