    2,000-year-old Jewish settlement uncovered in Beer Sheva, Israel

    Excavations reveal, among other things, sherd of rare oil lamp depicting menorah, one of the earliest depictions of menorah discovered.




    For the first time, the remains of a Jewish settlement of the Second Temple period have been discovered in Beer Sheva. The archaeological excavation carried out to facilitate a new neighborhood near the northern entrance to Beer Sheba has revealed evidence of Jewish day-to-day life there, including part of an oil lamp decorated with a nine-branched menorah one of the earliest yet discovered by researchers as well as limestone vessels used by Jews for reasons of ritual purity, a watchtower and more. The site, dated from the 1st century CE until the Bar-Kokhba Revolt in 135 CE, also appears to contain underground hidden passageways used by the Jewish rebels.
