( Archaeologists have uncovered the remains of structures from the Second Temple era and which may have been used during the Bar Kochba rebellion in the early second century. The site is located near Ben Shemen, between Jerusalem and Tel Aviv.

The Antiquities Authority said it discovered candles, cooking utensils, coins and ritual baths and secret passages, which may have been hideouts during the rebellion.
