Photo: Underground Tunnels Found in Israel Used In Ancient Jewish Revolt



An aerial view of a recently uncovered ancient hideaway found at the Israeli Arab village of Kfar Kana—a Galilee-region site near the city of Nazareth. The series of underground chambers and tunnels were likely used as refuges during the First Jewish Revolt, an uprising against Roman rule that began in A.D. 66.
