An ancient Jewish village recently was unearthed on the outskirts of Jerusalem. Some of the walls of the nearly 2,000-year-old village, discovered by archaeologists, were still intact. The village is estimated to have been built around 60-70 C.E. and abandoned 70 years later during the Bar-Kochba Revolt.
