Second Temple Period Quarry and Iron Key discovered in Jerusalem!

During excavations that took place while preparing a new highway in northern Jerusalem, archeologists discovered a huge quarry that dates back to the Second Temple period. And in the quarry, they found a large, unusual key that probably opened a public building from the times. Stones from the quarry are enormous, and no doubt were used in some of Jerusalem’s monumental Second Temple period buildings! Also uncovered was an assortment of ancient tools.

Over some weeks Aviva, Shmuel, my nephew and I planned a wonderful itinerary which catered for all of our needs and 'must see' attractions in Israel. We were met and were subsequently treated as friends, and Aviva and Shmuel were convivial company and knowledgable and professional guides whilst always catering for the personal. A lifetime of memories in 10 days, our thanks to them both!!
