Byzantine Road Found in Jerusalem

The Madaba mosaic

Dig anywhere in Jerusalem and you uncover someone’s history.  Thirteen feet under Jerusalem’s Old City, near the Jaffa Gate, the remains of a 1500 year old Byzantine road have been uncovered during excavation for a public works project.  Experts strongly believe it is the prominent road pictured on a large 6th century mosaic in the Jordanian church of St. George.
