JERUSALEM, Israel – Israeli archaeologists digging in a city near Tel Aviv have uncovered rare artifacts that give a picture of what life was like 1,500 years ago during the Byzantine period.

The Israel Antiquities Authority (IAA) came across the finds while excavating in the Ramat Ha-Sharon region.

“The excavation unearthed evidence of agricultural-industrial activity at the site during the Byzantine period – about 1,500 years ago. Among other finds, we discovered a large winepress paved with a mosaic as well as plastered installations and the foundations of a large structure that may have been used as a warehouse or even a farmstead,” explains Dr. Yoav Arbel, Director of the excavation on behalf of the Israel Antiquities Authority.
