Tel Aviv: Researchers in Israel have found 4 1,900-year-old and best-preserved Roman swords and a spearhead in a cave close to the shores of the Useless Sea.
In line with worldwide media experiences, the Israel Antiquities Authority mentioned that the weapons had been discovered close to the archaeological web site of Ein Gedi when scientists went to research historical carvings present in the identical cave 10 years in the past.
In a press release launched by the Israel Antiquities Authority, Eton Klein, director of the survey challenge, mentioned that a whole lot of centuries of swords and spears hidden in a cave north of Ein Gedi point out that the weapons had been imported from Roman troopers. Taken as booty or from the battlefield and intentionally hidden for reuse by Jewish rebels.
He added that the Jewish rebels clearly didn’t need the Roman authorities to catch them with these weapons. We are actually beginning analysis on the cave and the cache of weapons present in it to attempt to discover out who these weapons belonged to and the place they got here from. As well as, we are going to decide whether or not or not they date to the time of the Bar Kokhba revolt in 132-135 AD.
