Ancient Jaffa Wine Press

2 posts in this topic

"Archaeologists have revealed what could be part of a 1,500-year-old wine-making factory underneath a street in the ancient city of Jaffa, now part of Tel Aviv, the Israel Antiquities Authority (IAA) announced.

Researchers think the installation dates back to the second half of the Byzantine period, around the sixth to early seventh centuries A.D. Its smooth, mosaic surfaces suggest it was used in the production of some kind of liquid."



Now, does that 'wine press' look like a toilet or does it look like a toilet?

Almost forgot... is it not amazing what can be found under our streets? So much history, right below us. The sad part is most of it will never be unearthed, for obvious and understandable reasons. :(
