Arheologii israelieni au dezgropat recent o structura antica subterana, parti care dateaza inapoi de pe vremea romanilor, numai la cativa metri de la Muntele Templului, a raportat dumninica Canalul 10 israelian.

,,Este una din cele mai impresionante, minunate si grandioase ruine descoperite recent in Israel,” a spus statiei de televiziune, arheologul Yuval Baruch de la Autoritatea Israeliana de Antichitati (AIA), Regiunea Ierusalim.

,,Este una din cele mai semnificative ruine” descoperite in Ierusalim, in ultima generatie,” a spus el.

Sapaturile care sunt in curs de desfasurare si au loc dedesubtul plazei Zidul de Vest in fostul Sector Mughrabi a Orasului Vechi al Ierusalimului, prezinta un caravanserai (han) din era Mamluk care dateaza din Evul Mediu si ramasite de cladiri publice extravagante din perioada lui Irod, cu peste doua mii de ani in urma, la aproximativ 20 de metri (65 de picioare) de la Muntele Templului.

Baruch a explicat ca atunci cand au inceput sapaturile, umplatura de lut a atins plafonul celui ce acum este – caravanseraiul restaurat, si ca arheologii nu au avut idee cat de mare a fost structura.

,,Noi ne-am dat seama ca a fost altceva aici, in termeni de marime si in termeni de grandoare,” a spus el.

AIA a efectuat ,,lucrarea cea mai extensiva de preservare facuta vreodata in Ierusalim” pentru a restaura cladirea Mamluk inainte de a fi deschisa pentru public.

Raportul nu a dat nici o indicatie despre data cand Autoritatea de Antichitate are intentia sa deschida acest loc.

Acest raport a subliniat ca sapaturile nu sau extins dedesubtul Muntelui Templului, din motive religioase si politice.

Western Wall plaza dig reveals structures dating back to Herod
‘Significant, beautiful’ remains, including lavish public buildings, found by archaeologists 20 meters from — but not under — Temple Mount

Israeli archaeologists recently dug up an ancient subterranean structure, parts of which date back to Roman times, just meters from the Temple Mount, Channel 10 reported Sunday.

“It’s one of the [most] impressive, beautiful and grand places found recently in Jerusalem,” Israel Antiquities Authority Jerusalem Region Archaeologist Yuval Baruch told the station.

“It is one of the most significant remains” found in Jerusalem in the last generation,” he said.

The ongoing excavations, which are taking place beneath the Western Wall plaza in the former Mughrabi Quarter of Jerusalem’s Old City, feature a Mamluk-era caravansary dating to the Middle Ages and remains of lavish public buildings from the Herodian period, over 2,000 years ago, some 20 meters (65 feet) from the Temple Mount.

Baruch explained that when digging began, the earthen fill reached the ceiling of the now-restored caravansary, and that archaeologists had no idea how large the structure was.

“We understood that there was something else here, in terms of size, in terms of grandeur,” he said.

The IAA has conducted the “most extensive preservation work ever done in Jerusalem” to restore the Mamluk building ahead of its intended opening to the public.

The report gave no indication of when the Antiquities Authority aimed to open the site.

It emphasized that the excavations did not extend beneath the Temple Mount, for both religious and political reasons.
